Weed Wrangle

Dates: 3/3/2018 - 3/3/2018

Weed Wrangle®-Nashville, is an annual, one-day, citywide volunteer effort to help rescue our public parks and green spaces from invasive species through hands-on removal of especially harmful trees, vines and flowering plants. These include bush honeysuckle, Chinese privet, autumn olive, English ivy and winter creeper.

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. Volunteer at a site close to your home or close to your heart to make a difference in Nashville’s ecology.

Weed Wrangle®-Nashville is a Partners for Plants joint habitat restoration program of the Garden Club of America’s Conservation and Horticulture Committees. The Garden Club of Nashville, is a member of The Garden Club of America.

Please remember to bring gloves, long pants and a sturdy pair of shoes on your volunteer day. While some of the sites may provide refreshments, you might want to bring a water bottle as well.

Thanks for joining Weed Wrangle®-Nashville 2018!
