Spring Cedar Barrens Cleanup/Weed Wrangle

March 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Oak Ridge Cedar Barren will again be the site of exotic invasive plant removal as we conduct our spring cleanup. The area is one of just a few cedar barrens in East Tennessee, and is subject to invasion by bushy lespedeza, leatherleaf viburnum, privet, autumn olive, mimosa, Nepal grass, multiflora rose, and woody plants that threaten the system’s prairie grasses. Our efforts help to eliminate invasives and other shade-producing plants that prevent the prairie grasses from getting needed sunlight. Meet in the Jefferson Middle School Parking lot at 9 a.m. Bring loppers, gloves, and water. The work session will conclude at noon with a pizza lunch. Details online.
