Pickwick State Park seeks volunteers for annual Weed Wrangle

Tennessee State Parks and community partners are seeking volunteers to help rid the parks and State Natural Areas of invasive species with the annual Weed Wrangle on Saturday, March 7.
Most of the state parks, including Pickwick Landing in Hardin County, are participating.
The Weed Wrangle is part of a national effort to remove invasive plants from public spaces. State and community experts in invasive weed management will supervise the removal of trees, vines and flowering plants while volunteers learn ways to address their own green spaces to combat invasive species.
At Pickwick Landing State Park, volunteers will be tackling Bradford pear and Chinese privet. Meet at the park office on March 7. Work hours are from noon to 4 p.m. and for students count toward TN Promise scholarship qualification requirements.
Workers should wear closed toe shoes and dress for the weather. Bring a reusable water bottle because park staff will provide a cooler of water for refills.
Register by calling 731-689-3129 or online at https://bit.ly/2Vpq3Fl.
