Weed Wrangle® projects are organized, at the core, by individual Garden Club of America clubs but participation is beginning to come from additional venues across the county. Federal, state and local public lands can still participate, even if there is no GCA club in the vicinity. Much to our surprise, we currently have more public lands involved than GCA clubs, indicating expansion beyond our origin. Over the past five years in Tennessee alone, we average 60 plus sites per year and we have logged over 30,000 volunteer hours, removed approximately 150,300 invasive plants and replanted 2,200 native plants and trees.
The states highlighted in green show participation in Weed Wrangle® projects.
Because of COVID-19, many of our events have been put on HOLD.
