Tennessee River Rescue

Posted on 18th November 2014 by admin in Rivers of the world

People being active in Tennessee!!!

25 years ago a group of environmentalists decided enough was enough. Disgusted by the trash lining the Tennessee River, they started a grassroots efforts to make a difference in the Scenic City.

Each year volunteers help protect our source of drinking water during Tennessee River Rescue. Hundreds of people fan out across 20 zones in Bradley, Hamilton and Marion counties to clean up the banks of the Tennessee River and some tributaries. Tons of tires, plastic bottles and other trash have been removed by these eco-warriors over the years.
