Invasive Species Workdays: Multiflora Rose Pull at Oblong Rd.

Event Type

Help us restore our local ecosystems!

Feeling helpless in the face of climate change and biodiversity loss? Roll up your sleeves and join our effort to restore the local landscape!

Invasive plants threaten the biodiversity of our forests and wetlands: they outcompete native plant species for scarce resources, and in doing so, they disrupt ecosystems that have developed over millennia.

Join us at WRL’s Oblong Rd. property to help us restore the pasture by removing multiflora rose. All ages welcome, but minors under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. We will provide all training and equipment, no experience necessary. 

For questions, email


Rural Lands is hosting monthly invasive species removal days from April – October.  Each workday will be on a different Rural Lands property in Williamstown. 

You will learn:

  • About the variety of habitats found in Williamstown
  • How to ID invasive plants and about their disruptive roles in ecosystems
  • The importance of preserving native plant communities

Parking: The Oblong Rd. property is at the corner of Woodcock Rd. and Oblong Rd. Please park along the road on the side of the property – staff cars will be parked for guidance. Parking is very limited here, so carpooling or biking is suggested. 

What to bring:  Long sleeves and pants made of thicker material such as canvas (rose thorns will tear through lighter materials!), long socks, sturdy shoes/boots that can get dirty and torn, thick work or gardening gloves if you have them (we have some to borrow!).
