Weed Wrangle 2019

Weed Wrangle at Bowie Nature Park WHEN: Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 9am to 11am and 12pm to 2pm. WHAT: The Weed Wrangle®, is a one-day volunteer effort throughout Nashville and surrounding areas to help rescue our public parks and green spaces from invasive species through hands-on removal of especially harmful trees, vines and flowering plants. Typical unwelcome plants are honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica and L. maackii), Chinese privet (Ligustrum sinense), winter creeper (Euonymus fortunei), autumn olive (Elaeagnus umbellata var. parviflora), English ivy (Hedera helix) and kudzu (Pueraria montana var. lobata). We will have a morning group pulling Chinese Privet and Japanese Honeysuckle from 9 to 11am.  The afternoon group will be planting native species from noon to 2pm to help hold the disturbed soil and eventually feed our native wildlife. Lunch will be provided in-between volunteer sessions for anyone volunteering that day.  The food will be located at Shelter #1 where we will meet up before each session. Please wear close-toed shoes that are sturdy and you don't mind getting dirty.  Come dressed for the weather.  Layers are usually good for this time of year since it can start off in the 30's and make it to the 60's and 70's.  Bring a ...
