Chattanooga Parks and Outdoors Park Stewards Invites Participation In 10th Annual Weed Wrangle

  • Friday, February 23, 2024
Chattanooga Parks and Outdoors Park Stewards program is calling for volunteers to help rid Greenway Farm Park of invasive weeds as part of the 10th annual Weed Wrangle on Saturday, March 2 from 9 a.m.-noon at the park, 3008 Hamill Road in Hixson. Volunteers will join forces with parks staff and natural resources team members to learn plant identification and perform proper
eradication methods along popular trails at Greenway Farm.

The main goal will be privet removal along popular trails.

"Invasive/exotic plants and the pests associated with them degrade woodlands, threaten wildlife habitat, increase the risk of wildfire and alter the appearance of public spaces, including those set aside for enjoyment and recreation," organizers said.
"Without decisive intervention, these plants will continue to impact our city’s ecosystem resources and services harmfully."

Gloves and tools will be provided. The iNaturalist app will be used to categorize and identify plants and introduce an opportunity for citizen science engagement.
