Join Ijams for Weed Wrangle Knoxville and improve Citizens Cemetery, Knoxville's oldest Black cemetery! This event is part of a national volunteer effort to help rescue public parks and green spaces from invasive species by removing harmful trees, vines, and flowering plants.
Volunteers will park at 2226 Cityview Ave., Knoxville, TN 37915 and take a short walk to meet at 9:30 a.m. at the cemetery on Fuller Ave., where it intersects with Sanders Ln. and Addison St. Tools and gloves will be provided. Wear closed-toed shoes, long-sleeved shirts and pants to protect yourself from thorns and poison ivy. Wear layers and bring a jacket if it's cold. BRING WATER! Masks will only be necessary when within six feet of each other. If you are exhibiting any sign of fever or illness, do not participate in this workday.
