In with the Natives, Out with the Invasives

Presented by Cumberland River Compact at Cumberland River Compact, Nashville TN

Sep 23 2015
In with the Natives, Out with the Invasives

The dual goals of improving the health of Cathy Jo Branch and providing a native prairie habitat for elk and bison at the Nashville Zoo are coming together in this unique stormwater retrofit project. We’ll learn about the two stages of transforming the landscape of this project site.

First, Steve Manning, owner of Invasive Plant Control, will walk us through the importance and process of removing invasive exotic plants, using the Zoo project example of clearing a six acre area and setting the stage for restoring native plantings. Second, Kevin Guenther, landscape architect with Ragan-Smith Associates, will share the vision for restoring native plantings to the site that will provide habitat for elk, bison, and other local wildlife, while also benefiting the health of a small headwater stream and the Nashville crayfish that live there. 

Join us for the second of three presentations on this multi-purpose stormwater retrofit project with the Nashville Zoo.
