Event Type

The Hudson Conservation Commission (a SuAsCo CISMA host organization) is hosting an invasive plant removal volunteer event on Saturday, July 20, 9:30am-11:30am in Danforth Falls Conservation Land in Hudson, MA.

Sign up here:

We will meet at the Danforth Falls Trailhead on Lincoln St at 9:30am.

We will be focusing on removing Japanese barberry and burning bush from a heavily infested area in the lowlands of the conservation land, adjacent to where we’ve already made significant progress removing these invasive plants this season.

Since we will be removing thorny Japanese barberry, please bring thick gloves (we will have some extra pairs for those who need them).

Many of the plants we are removing are large and well-established, and a shovel can help get them up, and clippers can help clear branches enough to get at the roots. We have several shovels and pairs of clippers for volunteers to use, but if any volunteers are able to bring their own that’s appreciated too, since it helps us to have more equipment to go around.

Come prepared for active work in the woods. We encourage:

  • Water
  • Closed toed shoes
  • Long sleeves/pants
  • Eye protection (for the thorns)
  • Bug spray

Contact Ken Skudder ( or Patrick Thayer ( with any questions.

We look forward to seeing you there!
