Wild Blackberries (Rubus spp). The abundant Wild Blackberries, or brambles, that are found at the Charlestown Reservation provide an important food source for many animals. The thorny thickets also offer a place of cover for small birds to nest and, in winter, for rabbits and mice to be protected from predators, like owls, hawks, and foxes (Newton).
