  1. First I want to say that I am sorry that I was not present at this years Richland Creek Clean Up. I also want to say that I appreciate the efforts by the Richland Creek Watershed Alliance to restore the beauty and health of the creek that once was West Nashville's source for drinking water, agricultural irrigation and summer recreation.

    Long before Nashville's founding father James Roberston first cultivated corn along the banks of Richland Creek in 1780, various societies----going back thousands of years-- developed on both sides of the creek. The disregard that many people now show for the ecological state of this body of water, not only threatens the environmental safety of Richland Creek, but also threatens to destroy the historical integrity of West Nashville's most enduring and defining feature.

    Thanks again for working so hard to preserve and protect Richland Creek.
