Much of Nahanton Park, including its grassland Woodcock Meadow (home to the threatened American Woodcock), is being invaded by non-native plants. They out-compete native plants, reduce biodiversity, and negatively impact bird life. Nahanton Park invaders include garlic mustard, black swallow-wort, multi-flora rose, Tree of Heaven, buckthorn, and black locust. Help improve the beauty and diversity of this special park (and help the American Woodcock) by cutting back/removing these invasive species. Sturdy shoes, long pants, long sleeves and work gloves recommended. Meet at the Woodcock Meadow entrance from the upper lot off Nahanton St (near the canoe rental).
