Tackling Purple Dew

Once again, under the supervision of National Trust volunteer Ranger Josh, the team were tasked with removing the invasive and non-native Purple Dew plant that carpets areas of St Ouen's bay and suffocates our native coastal plants and displaces nesting insects.

Team effort

The Purple Dew thrives in sandy and salty environments, but its roots are very easy to hand-pull out of the sand. The National Trust were astonished that the team managed to fill all of their five bags in under the two hours allotted!

Support local

It’s always fantastic to support such important local initiatives, as well as being a brilliant bonding experience for everyone who volunteered. Great work team!
