About the Event

Help us to remove invasive glossy buckthorn from a unique pitch pine-scrub oak barrens habitat in Sudbury. Learn about this globally-rare fire-dependent natural community and help us to keep the buckthorn at bay. We will be hand-pulling the plants. We will provide on-site training in identification and pulling method. Children 11 years and older are welcome with an adult. COVID protocols will be followed.
