Date: Sunday, May 1, 2022 (Rain date: Saturday, May 7, 2022 )
Time: 1-3 pm

Event Location: adjacent to 18 Wright Terrace
At the end of Wright Terrace, park off the road on the east side, facing the garden.

Join ACT members and friends as we work to remove bittersweet and other invasive plants from our beautiful Wright Hill property. The work will include a combination of pulling, digging, cutting and stacking removed invasive brush in compost piles.

FAMILY GROUPS ARE WELCOME! Following a brief orientation of what bittersweet looks like and how best to remove it, volunteers will be shown to a work area. If Scout groups would like to stay longer, please let us know!

Come dressed in boots or sturdy shoes with long sleeves and pants, sprayed for ticks and mosquitos. Expect weedy, rocky and uneven terrain, with poison ivy growing on some stone walls. Please bring leather work gloves (best for thorns) and clippers, bypass pruners and loppers if you have them. Weed wrenches are ALWAYS welcome! We will have extra tools and some loaner gloves available. We’ll also have water and refreshments.
