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.

Leaders are Katherine Howard, 617-721-2571 and Suzette Barbier.
