Buckthorn Pulling at Wetherbee

Buckthorn, originally native to parts of Europe and Asia, is an invasive plant found throughout the U.S. Once valued in landscaping as attractive hedges, this plant can overtake native habitat thanks to its production of large numbers of seeds. For this project, we are partnering with Acton Trails to pull Buckthorn out of the Wetherbee Land. This area features a working farm, a few miles of trails, and habitat for a variety of wildlife. Come for the project, and stay to explore!
