3. Greenway Clean-up

WHAT:  Let’s show the Greenway some love! The recent flood & storm-water runoff not only dumped tons of water onto the Greenway, but it also carried paper, plastic and other litter along with it that could end up in the Stones River, which is a main tributary to the Cumberland. You don’t need to bring a thing except yourself and a comfortable pair of shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Trash bags, litter grabbers, bug spray and gloves will be provided.
