Himalayan Balsam is a prohibited noxious weed that grows in Alberta and is destructive to the sensitive habitat of our river valley. The City of Edmonton is looking for volunteers to come out for a weed pull on July 25th at Hermitage Park. All ages are welcome and there will be a barbecue after the pull.
