Weed Wrangle

Want to spend a day outside protecting native plants and keeping our Greenways and waterways beautiful?

The Cumberland River Compact, Socket, and Greenways for Nashville need your help on the Cumberland River Greenway to pull out invasive plants and clear space for native plants. Come out to make a difference in our biodiversity, to learn about the importance of native ecosystems, and to have some fun.

Your help is needed to pull out invasive weeds along the Cumberland River Greenway with hand tools. Please wear pants and heavy, durable shoes. Bring water, and any clippers, loppers, or other weeding tools you might have, and we will supply other tools. SIGN UP HERE.

Weed Wrangle®, is a one-day, citywide, volunteer effort to help rescue our public parks and green spaces from invasive species through hands-on removal of especially harmful trees, vines and flowering plants.

Explore Your Greenways

Winter is definitely here, but the days and hours we can spend outdoors in daylight are growing by minutes each day. With Spring just around the corner, now is the time to get familiar with the enjoyable outdoor spaces Nashville offers its residents and guests. It may seem hard to find nature in an urban setting, but in addition to its city parks, Nashville boasts almost 90 miles of paved greenways that connect people and activities throughout the city. It’s time to take a second look at your greenways!
