River Swing 2021

An evening under the stars to support rivers in TN


Harpeth Conservancy’s mission of protecting clean water and your rivers is more vital than ever during this global pandemic and economic upheaval. Our core focus is to make sure our rivers in Tennessee are healthy for everyone. Dangerous bills and less enforcement are threatening our waterways and water systems, but we are watching and working hard. However, we cannot do it alone. We need your support.

For 17 years, our annual River Swing event has been a fabulous celebration while raising nearly one third of the needed funds for our mission. This year, we hope to continue the tradition with 18th annual River Swing. Our hope is that regardless of the times, you will continue to support our work for clean water this year when it is needed more than ever.

Harpeth Conservancy has broadened both the scope and geographic reach of its work as it applied lessons learned on the Harpeth to rivers and streams across the state. By seeking water quality solutions developed with diverse stakeholders, Harpeth Conservancy builds broad stewardship and shared responsibility for streams and rivers that are vital for the state’s economic well-being and quality of life.

We are the river.
United we are the solution.
