Nashville Group Helps Clean Stream Affected by Flooding

June 7, 2021

A group from CEC Nashville recently participated in a community stream cleanup with the City of La Vergne, Tennessee. During the event, 40 bags of refuse, 50 feet of silt fence, vinyl siding, lumber, and numerous plastic bottles/bags were collected along the Hurricane Creek Greenway. The area had seen several large flooding events over the past few years, leading to pollution in the stream.

The effort was led by Hands On Nashville, an organization whose programs have connected volunteers with opportunities to support more than 200 nonprofits, schools, and other civic organizations for more than 30 years.

Nashville office volunteers included Clark Chewning, Bert Morton, Lindsay Wilson-Kokes, Christine Guy-Baker, and Emily Reed. Along with the Nashville office volunteers, more than 20 volunteers from the Rutherford County area came to support the City of La Vergne’s efforts.
