Weed Wrangle Knoxville is part of a national volunteer effort to help rescue public parks and green spaces from invasive species through hands-on removal of especially harmful trees, vines, and flowering plants.
Join Ijams for the 2023 Weed Wrangle Knoxville!
Mark your calendar to tackle some nonnative, invasive species on Saturday, March 11, from 9:30 am-12 pm! Working together as a community, we all can make a positive difference for native habitats and wildlife.
This year's Weed Wrangle Knoxville features two sites and the goal is to have 40 volunteers at each site.

Also sometimes referred to as Eastport Cemetery, Knoxville's oldest Black cemetery is estimated to hold the graves of an estimated 5,000 freedmen and slaves, and is being restored under the leadership of Knoxville Re-Animation Coalition. Register to Volunteer at Citizens Cemetery
