Pepperweed Pulls on the North Shore

Published: May 16, 2017

Pepperweed is an invasive plant that grows in open sunny patches along roads, in sand dunes, as well as around salt marshes. Although not (yet) a problem in New Hampshire, it is in full force a stones throw away in Massachusetts. This weed stretches across marshes and other open areas in full force. Affecting the growth of the native Marsh Elder, Pepperweed is a problem that, if not treated urgently, will cause damage by altering the native habitats. Help protect the biodiversity of local ecosystems by helping to pull the invasive perennial pepperweed on conservation properties near you! Mass Audubon is sponsoring pepperweed pulls in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Check out the list of upcoming events, below, and sign-up to help!
