UT Arboretum Weed Wrangle® @ UT Arboretum

TCWP is cosponsoring a social distanced Weed Wrangle® at the UT Arboretum on Saturday, August 22 at the UT Arboretum from 9am-12 noon. Additional cosponsors are Tennessee Invasive Plant Council (TNIPC), the UT Arboretum Society, and the UT Arboretum.

Participants will meet at 9am at the UT Arboretum Auditorium Parking lot. The goal of this Weed Wrangle® is removing invasive plants from a plot close to the Auditorium. The plan for this plot is to remove large invasives, autumn olive, privet and other smaller invasives to prepare this area for meadow construction. This event is the first step in transforming the area from an invasive plant-infested plot as the first step to a meadow demonstration garden that increase wildlife and pollinators habitat and serve as a teaching tool.

There will be weed wrenches to help remove the larger invasives. Participants are encouraged to bring their own tools to prevent the cross handling of equipment, a mask, water, and sun and bug protection.

Attendees (must be 18 or older) are asked to pre-register for this event with Michelle Campanis at mcampani@utk.edu or 615-310-6992 with your name, email, phone number and number in your party. Event updates may be sent closer to the event.
