Invasive Species Identification, Removal

Guest Guide: TN State Parks’ Morgin Arms

Meet 10 AM EDT Rugby Visitor Centre


Throughout the year, the Friends of the Rugby State Natural Area work tirelessly to support, maintain and manage the land’s wildlife and flora. This is a tough job requiring the removal of detrimental invasive species that try to choke out the area’s indigenous inhabitants.

Join Morgin Arms, with Tennessee State Parks, to hike through Rugby’s trail system while learning to identify invasive species, and participate in protecting this natural treasure by helping pull a bit of Japanese spirea.

We meet at 10 AM Eastern in front of the Historic Rugby Visitor Centre.
