Mill Creek Orchard Bend Park


Come help us plant trees! Two years ago Harpeth Conservancy and Mill Creek Watershed Association partnered to plant native bare-root seedlings along riparian areas in Orchard Bend Park. Many of the trees survived; however, some didn’t. We need your help to fill in gaps and replace trees that didn’t survive. A tree expert will demonstrate tree planting techniques and talk about the importance of native tree biodiversity. Bring work gloves and a water bottle. Hand tools and light refreshments will be provided. Masks, hand sanitizer and work gloves will be available. No experience is necessary. We will meet at the Orchard Bend Park Pettus Road parking lot trailhead for an orientation. All ages are welcome, and anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Please plan to support our efforts to keep everyone safe and healthy while working in our watershed by following current COVID-19 guidelines.
