Given the ongoing clean up efforts after the devastating storms here in Wilson and surrounding counties earlier this week, and the need for volunteers for those efforts, the Weed Wrangle® initially slated for this weekend at Cedars of Lebanon State Park has been rescheduled. The new date is Saturday, 4 April 2020. To participate, meet at the Nature Center by 9:00 a.m. Regardless of the weather, you are encouraged to wear long pants and sturdy shoes or boots (no sandals or flip-flops!).
Weed Wrangle® is a one-day, area-wide, volunteer effort to help rescue our public parks and green spaces from non-native invasive species through hands-on removal of especially harmful trees, vines, and flowering plants. Supervised by an expert in invasive weed management, Weed Wrangle® volunteers learn, practice and begin a habit of maintaining an area free of non-native invasive plants and encourage replanting with natives in removal areas. By engaging our neighbors and challenging them to take action in their own spaces, we hope to create a movement that will have the greatest impact on the invasive plant population.
