National Public Lands Day cleanup -- Saturday, September 24
TCWP's annual observance of National Public Lands Day will, as it has for a number of years, feature a morning of invasive exotic plant removal at the TVA Small Wild Area at Worthington Cemetery on the east end of Oak Ridge. Our yearly efforts in this area are helping to eradicate wisteria from the cemetery, and privet and other invasive exotics from the SWA. A pizza lunch will follow our work session, which will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude around noon. For additional information, contact TCWP Executive Director Sandra Goss at Sandra@sandrakgoss.com or at (865) 583-3967.
