Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park Seeks Volunteers For Weed Wrangle 2024

  • Friday, February 16, 2024
Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, in partnership with Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center, is looking for volunteers to help remove exotic invasive plant species along their shared boundary as part of Weed Wrangle 2024.

On Saturday, March 2 at 9 a.m., join National Park Service and Reflection Riding staff along with other volunteers at Reflection Riding, 400 Garden Road in Chattanooga, for a workday on a portion of the Lookout Mountain Battlefield removing Chinese privet, bush honeysuckle and other invasive plant species along Lookout Creek. 

Volunteers are asked to wear clothing appropriate for the weather and outdoor work that they don’t mind getting dirty.  Also, volunteers should wear sturdy, close-toed shoes or boots; no flip-flops.
All tools and supplies will be provided, including gloves, but if volunteers want to bring their own pair, they are welcome to do so. Volunteers may want to bring a water bottle and lite snacks.
