The Nations neighborhood in the Richland Creek watershed was hit hard during the May flood and much remains to remind us. The debris here can create blockages and cause upstream flooding. There is an above ground sewer line crossing the stream that makes this scenario more likely. RCWA needs volunteer help to clean up this riparain zone March 26th. Meet us at our registration tent 8:30 a.m. Saturday at 1006 Delray Court (red circle on map below) and let us know you are coming - Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the Hands On Nashville webste at www.hon.org to pledge your participation. Some volunteers with wonder bars to help dismantle constructed items, wheel barrels to move heavy debris and rakes to retrieve items from trees helpful!
Parking is not available at clean up site but there is plenty of parking available at the W.A. Bass Middle School, 5200 Delaware Avenue or on other nearby streets.
The clean-up area is a floodplain that can be muddy and unlevel - ankle-high boots recommended. Eye protection suggested preventing poking from branches. Please dress for current weather and expect to get dirty. The debris is concentrated in a small area and close to the staging area fro removal. Volunteers will need to retrieve some debris across a stormwater tributary using the buddy system. Children will need adult supervision.
