Here's some GREAT news with you – Harpeth Conservancy is now taking over Richland Creek Watershed Alliance!!
What that means going forward
After over 10 years of amazing work, Monette Rebecca, the Executive Director, has retired but wanted to be sure that her work and legacy live on. Monette will continue to consult and bring historical knowledge of the work done on Richland Creek to protect and restore it. Harpeth Conservancy and RCWA have worked together as partners on things like the Nashville Waterways Consortium and issues around the flood in 2010, so this transition is a natural and perfect fit.
Harpeth Conservancy’s mission is to restore and protect clean water and healthy ecosystems for rivers in Tennessee by employing scientific expertise and collaborative relationships to develop, promote, and support broad community stewardship and action. The work on Richland Creek seamlessly falls into HC’s scope of work.
