About

Weed Wrangle(r), is a one-day, citywide, volunteer effort to help rescue our public parks and green spaces from invasive species through hands-on removal of especially harmful trees, vines and flowering plants, such as honeysuckle, Chinese privet, English ivy, and kudzu. Come help clear invasive privet along the South Chickamauga Creek Greenway. 9 miles of trail wind through a mix of landscapes, including parks, commercial areas, and residential neighborhoods. We'll be working in the section closest to the TN Riverwalk, which opened to the public two years ago. Focusing on privet removal will make way for more native trees and plants to thrive along this creek corridor. Supervised by experts in invasive weed management, Weed Wrangle(r)-volunteers will learn, practice, and begin a habit of maintaining an area free of invasive plants. All tools will be provided. Please wear long pants and close-toed shoes. Bring gloves if you have them and a water bottle.We will be working on uneven terrain. Trust for Public Land and City of Chattanooga are hosting this event.
