About the event

We will remove invasive, non-native plants, mainly bush honeysuckle and Chinese privet along the Greenway trail, which will require an approximately eight-minute walk from the main Orchard Bend parking.  We will use Uprooters/Weed Wrenches, mattocks, shovels and loppers. Work gloves, energy bars, and bulk water will be provided (bring reusable water bottles). Uprooters/Weed Wrenches and some shovels, mattocks and loppers will be provided.   To supplement what we provide, volunteers should bring sturdy shovels, mattocks and loppers, if available. Bring reusable water containers and safety glasses or glasses.  Wear sturdy work shoes or boots, long pants and long sleeve shirts, dress in layers appropriate for weather.    Mill Creek Watershed Association (MCWA) and Friends of Mill Creek Greenway (FMCGW) will be the onsite hosts for this event which is being organized county-wide by the Garden Club of Nashville and Weed Wrangle Nashville.  MCWA is working to protect and inform about Mill Creek, and FMCGW is working to protect and improve Mill Creek Greenway. The work will allow native trees and shrubs to grow and will benefit native wildlife  that rely on these plants.   

Please park at the Orchard Bend parking lot.   A light lunch will be served immediately after at Blue Hole Farm across the street.

Weed Wrangle® is an ongoing, city-wide 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.
