"Volunteers do not necessarily have
the time, they just have the heart." – Elizabeth Andrew
Since 2008, the Nashville Clean Water Project has been working to improve Midstate waterways through innovative programs and the kindness of thousands of volunteers.
Contributing more than $1 million in community service value and representing tens of thousands of volunteer hours, our part-time community initiative has inspired the region with campaigns against trash at Percy Priest Lake, flood recovery projects on Mill Creek, pollution mitigation strategies at Garrison Creek, and eco-service projects on Stones River. Our work has positively impacted countless other tributaries, and educated Middle Tennesseans about the impact their human behaviors have on local water. And our innovative storm drain adoption program is the very first in the Southeast.
If you’ve participated in one of our previous projects, thank you!! Each Nashville Clean Water Project event has been a tremendous success because of the spirit and generosity of our volunteers. Time and time again, our supporters prove to be a unique breed. We appreciate each one of you.
Please keep the campaign against trash in Midstate waterways a public conversation and get involved somehow! Just poke around our website until you find something that interests you.
