What We Do
Harpeth Conservancy’s River Restoration program plans and implements projects that protect and improve water quality and ecosystem health for rivers in Middle Tennessee. We carry out a large variety of restoration projects every year, with assistance from experts, dedicated volunteers, governmental agencies, corporate partners, civic groups, and other watershed stakeholders. Our restoration efforts, ranging from river cleanups to streambank stabilization, ultimately reduce pollution in the river, enhance habitats, and protect aquatic wildlife. If you would like to get involved with our restoration projects, please check out our volunteer opportunities or contact Marie at email@example.com.
Wetlands play a vital role in maintaining ecological balance and supporting biodiversity, and Tennessee is no exception to the significance of these precious ecosystems.
