Weed Wrangle at Belle Forest Cave & Arboretum
The 4.13-acre Belle Forest Cave property, owned by the Tennessee Parks and Greenways Foundation, is part of a wildlife corridor connecting the West Meade Waterfall to Warner Parks. Both are managed by Metro Parks.
Volunteers will be removing invasive plants of small and large sizes. We will be removing a large brush pile from the site and this requires heavy lifting and teamwork. Coffee and snacks will be provided.
Wear clothes that can get dirty, dress for the weather and wear closed toed-shoes. Please bring any tools you have such as loppers, shovels, and pickaxe.
Weed Wrangle®-Nashville volunteers will learn, practice, and begin a habit of maintaining an area free of invasive plants. By engaging our neighbors and challenging them to take action in their own spaces, we hope to create a movement that will have the greatest impact on the invasive plant population in the Nashville area.
In accordance with Mayor John Cooper’s Roadmap for Reopening Nashville, Hands On Nashville recommends the following guidelines for volunteering:
Individuals belonging to the following groups should not volunteer for in-person opportunities: ages 65 and up, those with elevated health risk or compromised immune systems, anyone who is feeling unwell (or who has been exposed to/is caring for someone who is sick or has a compromised immune system).
Volunteers who attend projects should take recommended precautions, including maintaining distances between themselves and other people; practicing hand-washing and sanitation of spaces; wearing gloves, masks, and other protective gear; etc. As always, consult a medical professional should you begin to feel unwell at any point during or after a project.
If you decide not to attend a project, please log in to hon.org and remove yourself from the opportunity ahead of time so that another volunteer may have a chance to fill your slot. If you have any trouble with this, email email@example.com and we’ll be happy to help!
Please be aware that your project may be canceled with short notice. Projects are subject to change depending on shifting guidelines and circumstances. We appreciate your understanding.
