The five core Galloway rivers in the CIRB project (Luce, Bladnoch, Fleet, Dee and Urr) are all now displaying their new custom made riverbank signs. These signs were especially designed and erected by a company in Ireland, where the process was managed by the project leader, Queens University Belfast. The signs explain the project and help identify the three main invasive non-native plant species; Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and Himalayan Balsam.
Similar signs are also on project rivers in Ayrshire, Argyll and on the Tweed. Numerous signs are also on the Irish rivers within the project.
