Join us on Saturday April 8, 1 - 3 PM removing invasive Garlic Mustard from one of our conservation lands. We want to do this in the spring before it produces seeds and spreads more. Please RSVP to Joe Holmes (Joseph.Holmes@alum.mit.edu, or 978-635-1982) so we can tell you where to meet. If we get enough response, we may split to multiple locations. Dress for the weather and bringĀ  a weeding tool.

Hack that Knotweed!

June 24 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Acton Canoe Launch, 67 POWDER MILL RD
Acton, MA 01720 United States

Release your inner assassin! Help us destroy the Japanese Knotweed growing at the Acton Canoe Launch. We will meet 10AM to 1PM on Saturday June 24, before the heat of the day. Knotweed is too hard to kill, so our control plan is: Chop it to the ground several times a year, and encourage other native plants so they will shade it out. Please contact Joe Holmes (Joseph.Holmes@alum.mit.edu, 978-635-1982) if you can come, so I know how many are coming.
