On Saturday, September 25, Worthington Cemetery Ecological Study Area will be the site of multi-events, including a program about the pre-Civil war cemetery and the Worthington family’s life centuries ago, a tour of the ESA, and treating some pesky non-native, prolific buckthorn to a good Weed Wrangle®. This frequently-held annual event, co-hosted by TVA and TCWP, helps to eradicate wisteria, privet, and other pest plants and to heighten awareness of the historically and ecologically significant land.
Volunteers should meet at Oak Ridge’s Elza Gate park at 9:00 a.m.; the event will end about noon. Bring loppers and/or clippers if available, and wear sturdy shoes and clothes. There likely will be insects and ticks in abundance. Take precautions.
BTW, ticks are arachnids, not insects.
