Weed Wrangle™-Nashville
Last year, the Garden Club of Nashville in partnership with The Garden Club of America's Partners for Plants program, partnered with Invasive Plant Control, Inc. to sponsor a "Weed Wrangle" in Warner Parks, a 3200-acre city park composed of woodlands and natural area including old growth forest. Nine other partners participated in 2015. Building on the successes of the first Weed Wrangle, this year’s event will take place March 5, 2016 with Warner Parks and 14 other city parks in the Nashville area. The project’s goal is to broaden its partnership and increase its impact.


All events are 9-12 unless otherwise specified.
