The Reservation Welcomes Your Help

Invasive Plant Management: Japanese Knotweed

Sat, June 29, Sat. July 13, Sat. July 27  9:30 am - 12 pm 


DBR is undertaking a proactive way of handling this invasive species by cutting stems at the base every two weeks throughout the growing season. Our goal is that by the first frost in the fall, we have exhausted the plant’s energy stores and they die off over the winter. We’ll continue this process for several more years with the goal of continually exhausting the plants while simultaneously planting natives that have the best chances to out compete the invasive ones.

Help us control this invasive plant that is encroaching on Duxbury Beach. 




Appropriate for adults and students age 16 and older. 

OSV Nesting Deterrent Maintenance - watch for future dates

BEACH CLEANUP - Unfortunately, this spring’s beach clean-up was cancelled due to bad weather. Thank you to all who expressed interest – our Fall Beach Clean-up will be held in mid-October. Hope to see you then!

Remember – you can always help keep the beach clean by picking up trash when you visit. Take a walk with a purpose!

Nesting deterrents are an effort to reduce the time this section of the beach may be closed due to nesting shorebirds. Maintaining these features will make them more effective during the nesting season. Assist DBR efforts by clearing sand off pallets and repairing flagging in the dunes near crossover 2.
