Join us to restore, maintain and beautify public areas of Garrison Creek

On Saturday, November 18th from 9am-12pm CST Green Interchange volunteers will continue working with Rutherford County and the Murfreesboro Stormwater and Street Departments to restore, maintain and beautify the public areas along Garrison Creek in Murfreesboro. We will meet at the Kroger parking lot located at 2050 Lascassas Pike, Murfreesboro, TN 37130.  This event will take place rain or shine. Please register in advance so we can send any updates or contact you about any unexpected changes.  

Activities will include:

  • Dig up & relocate overcrowded dogwoods (extras may be available for volunteers to bring home!)
  • Clear out areas around native ornamental trees
  • Plant additional trees along Garrison Creek border
  • Help create NEW public walking trail
  • Install stand-alone community book libraries

About the Garrison Creek Restoration Project:

Work on Garrison Creek was originally started in 2012: Because of a lack of stream-like characteristics, Garrison Creek was managed as a ditch for years. The stream is listed on TN's polluted streams list (i.e. 303 d list).  Over the years, partners including Green Interchange have targeted issues facing the lower section of the creek through: tree plantings, education and outreach, algae pulls, and clean-ups. Garrison Creek is slowly transitioning to a healthy stream with diverse habitat. This video and/or this blog post shows some of our recent and past work. We're excited about the opportunity to achieve similar results on the UPPER portion of the stream this fall.
