Many native habitats, including the grassland Woodcock Meadow, home to threatened American Woodcock, and open
woodland habitats, are threatened by invasive plants. They out-compete native plants, reduce biodiversity and negatively impact birdlife. Nahanton Park has invasions of black swallow-wort, multi-flora rose, Tree of Heaven, buckthorn, garlic mustard, and black locust. Join us to improve the beauty and diversity of this special park (and help the American woodcock) by spending a few hours cutting back/removing these invasive species. Sturdy shoes, long pants, long sleeves and work gloves recommended.
We will meet at the small upper lot adjacent to Woodcock Meadow, next to the Canoe rental on Nahanton St.
