The Greenway behind Oak Ridge’s Rolling Hills Apartments (formerly known as the Garden Apartments) is one of the best wildflower trails in Ander-son County, but it is threatened by garlic mustard, a very invasive exotic that crowds out native plants. TCWP and Greenways Oak Ridge have been making headway in recent years in ridding the trail of this harmful plant. Volunteers are needed to help with the effort again this year.
We will meet at 10 a.m. at the rear parking lot (near the woods) behind 101-135 West Vanderbilt Drive. Wear sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate clothes, and bring water, food/snacks, and a digging spike or similar tool if you own one. Naturalist Jamie Herold will be on hand to help with wildflower identification.
