Weed Wrangle at Ijams River Trail
Time & Location
About the Event
**NOTE: This workday is limited to 10 participants. If you are not registered and we are over the limit of participants, we will ask you to come another time or give you a different assignment.
Volunteers will hike down to the section of River Trail that has been closed to remove some non-native and invasive wintercreeper in preparation for Ijams' upcoming trail reopening. Long-sleeved shirts and pants are recommended to protect from thorns and poison ivy. Bring water! The terrain is difficult and steep.
Please bring the following: water, appropriate clothing/footwear, and a mask if you have one (Ijams Visitor Center has simple disposable masks if you come without one). Masks will only be necessary when we are within six feet of each other. If you are exhibiting any sign of fever or illness, do not participate in this workday. Tools and gloves will be provided.
Meeting Spot: Mead's Quarry Parking Lot (Adventure Camp) 3518 Island Home Ave. Knoxville, TN 37920
