Invasive Plant Removal Workshop
September 24 - Fount, and Anna Bertram of the Murfreesboro Chapter and Ruth Ann Henry from the Upper Cumberland Chapter were among several who took part in the Invasive Plant Removal Workshop at Edgar Evins State Park. The event was registered as a National Public Lands Day observance. The instructors were Randy Hegepath, the Tennessee State Naturalist, and Mark Taylor, Park Ranger. After a short classroom presentation all adjourned to the outdoors to learn first-hand how to safely remove each of the species covered by the program and to enjoy our sack lunches under a beautiful blue sky. Those who attended are now certified to remove invasive plants at Edgar Evins State Park on their own at any time it works into their schedules by checking in and out with the park office or Ranger. This was the first group but the program will be repeated at intervals.
