Weed Wrangle is a nationwide event dedicated to eradicating Tennessee of non-native plant species through public education and volunteer plant removal. On Saturday, March 2, 2019, volunteers from across the nation will be helping to remove invasive plants in public spaces.
Join Rock Island State Park and help in removal of invasive species! We ask that you wear pants, closed toe shoes, and bring gloves.
Exotic invasive plants are those that aggressively spread and take habitat away from our native plants. Exotic invasive plants can also cause harm to human health as well as economic harm. If left unchecked these plants can quite rapidly change the face of our natural areas. Here at Rock Island we take our exotic invasive plants seriously. We have been focusing on Tree of Heaven, Privet, Kudzu, Winter Creeper, Autumn Olive, and Mimosa. We have been working hard to remove these exotics and have made a big difference in Rock Island. We hope you will join us in protecting your park! #TNPromise #TnAchieves
