Saturday, September 30: National Public Lands Day Cleanup at Worthington Cemetery (photo courtesy Betty Glenn)

TCWP and TVA will partner again for our annual National Public Lands Day (NPLD) celebration, to be held at TVA’s Worthington Cemetery Ecological Study Area on Melton Hill Reservoir in Oak Ridge. A pizza lunch will follow our work session, which will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude around noon.

TCWP has for many years partnered with TVA to enhance and protect natural resources at Worthington Cemetery and other TVA lands throughout East Tennessee as part of our mutual stewardship efforts. Our annual efforts in this area are helping to eradicate wisteria from the cemetery, and privet and other invasive exotics from the ESA. Additional details will be provided in the September newsletter and via email alert.

Additional information on all TCWP activities may be obtained from TCWP Executive Director Sandra K. Goss at or at (865) 583-3967.
