Many studies suggest that littering is more likely to occur if litter is already present, which is why Murfreesboro Greenway is hosting monthly cleanup events to keep the river and greenways clean and clear of litter.
Community members will gather on the first Wednesday in February, March and April to clean up the greenways. Due to weather, the first clean up event of the season will take place on Thursday, Feb 7 at 3pm (originally scheduled for Feb 6).
Gloves, bags and grabbers will be provided.
Dates & locations for the cleanup events include:
Wednesday, Feb 6. 3pm. Meet at Old Fort Park Trailhead near the ballfield.
Wednesday, March 6. 3pm. Meet at Cannonsburgh Trailhead
Wednesday, April 3. 3pm. Meet at Walter Hill Dam Trailhead
About The Murfreesboro Greenway System
The Murfreesboro Greenway System consists of the Stones River, Lytle Creek and Gateway trails. The greenways are available to enjoy nature hikes, walking, running, bicycling, or in-line skating along the 12 miles of riverside trails. Small watercraft access points are also available for paddlers to enjoy the Stones River. The Murfreesboro Greenway System connects historical sites, parks, neighborhoods and businesses; it also serves as a conservation corridor to preserve precious natural and cultural resources. Eleven trailheads provide access to the Murfreesboro Greenway System.
