RESCHEDULED: Weed Wrangle at Cedars of Lebanon SP – Saturday, 4 April 2020

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.
