[ARCHIVED] Garrison Creek restoration work continues Saturday, Oct. 8

Garrison Creek

Restoration work continues in Garrison Creek this Saturday October 8, 2022, from 9 a.m.–12 p.m. Volunteers are needed. 

 

Green Interchange volunteers will be planting, mulching, and pruning native trees along the stream. On Saturday, efforts will extend upstream to a previously unrestored segment of Garrison Creek above Gold Valley Drive. Streamside buffers improve water quality by providing shade, stabilization, habitat, and filtering runoff containing pollutants.

Restoration work of creeks and streams help improve our local watersheds.        

 

Watersheds are land areas that drain into a particular stream or lake. A healthy watershed is important because these waters supply drinking water, water for agriculture, habitat for plants and animals as well as recreational opportunities like swimming, fishing, and boating. 

 

Residents share the important responsibility of protecting and improving water quality in the watershed.

 

For more information, contact Stormwater Manager Josh Upham at jupham@murfreesborotn.gov or 615-642-6332.
