Barberry Pulling Party at Bailey Brook
Monday, June 20,
9:00 am to 11:30 am
Join volunteers from the Harris Center and Nelson Conservation Commission for a morning of pulling invasive barberry along the Bailey Brook Trail. Many hands make light work — and, hopefully, more room for native plants to thrive! Bring water, thick work gloves, and loppers or hand pruners, and be prepared for biting insects.
9 to 11:30 a.m. on the Bailey Brook Trail, near the old Osborn home and barn site. Trailhead parking is on the south side of Old Stoddard Road in Nelson, 1.4 miles from the junction with Route 123 (where Old Stoddard Road is called Bailey Brook Road) and 3 miles from Nelson village. Parking is limited, and carpooling is encouraged.
Registration is requested, to help us with our planning. For general information about Harris Center field trips, including questions about accessibility, see our Outings Information page. For questions about this particular outing, please contact Brett Amy Thelen or Kathy Schillemat.
Co-sponsored by the Nelson Conservation Commission and the Harris Center for Conservation Education.
