Volunteer Week: Glossy Buckthorn Pull at Memorial Forest

Program Details

Date and Time:

April 20, 2018 3:00pm to 5:00pm


Memorial Forest, Sudbury


SVT Stewardship Team



Help manage buckthorn at the beautiful and ecologically significant Memorial Forest! We will be manually pulling this invasive species, working to ensure that it does not take over and crowd out native plants, reducing healthy wildlife habitat. 

Memorial Forest and the Desert Natural Area have undergone significant restoration work to ensure the health of the rare ecosystem found there. See first hand what is being done to protect this area. 

No experience necessary. This work day is appropriate for families, if parents would like to involve children ages 7+ in the effort.

Update 4/14: Cancelled due to weather forecast.

Rescheduled for Friday, April 20, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
