Pocket Guide to Balsam Bashing: £5.00 special offer for environmental groups

Pocket Guide to Balsam Bashing 2

Invasive non-native species (INNS) tend to thrive most vigorously in places where human impacts are greatest. And that, of course, often means city river corridors and other edgelands where urban river restorationists and fly-fishers like to ply our trade.

Now balsam (and floating pennywort, rhododendron, mink, signal crayfish etc…) bashing season is here again, Merlin Unwin Books have come up with this great offer to help local environmental groups including Rivers Trusts, Wildlife Trusts, Trout in the Town cells and other conservation volunteers keep spreading the word about the battle against INNS.

When you buy 10 or more copies, you’ll pay just £5.00 per book – saving a full £2.99 off the usual RRP of £7.99.

The Pocket Guide to Balsam Bashing was written in close consultation with Defra’s Non-Native Species Secretariat, so it’s still the single most comprehensive guide to local action on INNS that’s available to anyone who’s not actually employed by Defra, Natural England, the Environment Agency, or their equivalents in Scotland and Ireland.

To take advantage of this awesome offer, and help spread the knowledge about INNS around your local environmental group, just call Merlin Unwin Books on 01584 877 456.

(Alternatively, if you’d prefer a single signed and dedicated copy, plenty of those are also available from the Urbantrout online shop).

Thanks for your support, and let’s carry on spreading the word and getting out there after those INNS this summer!
