The Reservation Welcomes Your Help

Over the past ten decades, volunteers young and old and from near and far have spent countless hours preserving and protecting Duxbury Beach.  The Duxbury Beach volunteer community has taken on everything from testing new erosion control methods, to organizing planting and cleanup efforts, to protecting and improving the beach through signage, outreach, events and a multitude of other projects.

Invasive Plant Management: Japanese Knotweed


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. Work takes place May-September. Check back Spring 2023 for more information.


Appropriate for adults and students age 16 and older. 

Vegetation Planting


Vegetation planting is an important component of DBR's Coastal Resiliency Program.  Vegetation helps the barrier beach  weather storms and strengthens the dunes.

Check back after February 1 for Spring 2023 opportunities.

Appropriate for adults and for students over age 14. Not suitable for younger children.
