#InvasiveFreeWP With Friends Like You

December 3, 2020

With Friends Like You

High school groups, eagle scouts, and corporate teams, oh my! We’re not afraid, but the invasive plants in Warner Parks should be, because we’re in root to being #InvasiveFreeWP, thanks to friends like you!

What's the Problem

Over 1,900 acres of Warner Parks is deemed overrun by invasive plants – the main culprits:

·     Japanese Honeysuckle

·     Chinese Privet

·     Euonymus

·     Ailanthus

Pretty as they may be, they literally over-occupy the forest—they often bush out earlier, and hold leaves longer, blocking other plants from receiving sunlight, and preventing the natural diversity of the forest from coming to fruition. This disrupts not only the plants, but the animals and insects, too.

They’re like the uninvited guest who shows up to the party an hour early and is also the last to leave, but thanks to our ongoing Pullin’ Parties and a growing number of community groups, we’re revving up our efforts to pull’em out, and keep’em out!

Get Involved

Whether you’re looking for an ongoing project with a group of friends, or a socially-distanced outdoor activity with your coworkers, we’d love for you to lend a hand in eradicating the invasive species in Warner Parks. 

Learn more about our Adopt-A-Park Volunteer Program, and contact Volunteer Coordinator Elizabeth Griscom to coordinate your own group activity.

 

#InvasiveFreeWP is an ongoing priority of our It’s My Nature Campaign. Learn more and get involved today, for after all, It’s Our Nature,Nashville.
