Weed Wrangle at Owl's Hill
Owl's Hill Nature Sanctuary is partnering with The Garden Club of Nashville and Invasive Plant Control for Weed Wrangle 2021.
Invasive species notoriously out-compete our native plants and animals. Our answer is to work to rid the land of these invaders, allowing our native friends to gain a foothold and return to the systems that have grown well together for millions of years. We can't work towards this mission without volunteer support!
Volunteers will help eradicate the nature sanctuary of non-invasive plant species through hands-on removal of especially harmful trees, vines, and flowering plants. We hope Weed Wrangle volunteers will not only learn to identify non-invasive plants, but take what they learn and begin a habit of maintaining their own backyard free of non-native invasive plants.
Owl's Hill will treat participants to a pizza lunch afterwards. Registration is required.
Please bring gloves, water bottle and wear sturdy clothes and closed toe shoes. Dress for the weather. Free parking. Follow the directional signs at the top of the driveway to the gravel road on the left. Take the gravel road downhill to the parking area. Please sign in at the Visitor's Center.
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.
