The Little Harpeth River winds through the City of Brentwood for 10 miles. The Rotary Club of Brentwood is organizing the 14th Annual Harpeth River Cleanup on Saturday, January 30, 2021.  Rotary is searching for civic groups, businesses, neighborhoods, or other citizens to volunteer to clean portions of the Little Harpeth as it flows through Brentwood. 

Please Note: Due to COVID-19 protocols, masks and social distancing will be mandatory at this gathering.
 

The Environmental Projects Committee of the Rotary Club of Brentwood has divided the river into manageable sections. Groups will meet outside of the meeting rooms of the John P. Holt Brentwood Library to register for the cleanup at 9:00 a.m. Trash bags, safety vests and trash removal gear will be provided and volunteers will have the rest of the day to remove debris and collect unwanted trash along the shoreline. Rotarians will be on hand to provide assistance and dispose of the trash at the end of the cleanup.

 

“The Little Harpeth River has been an integral part of Brentwood, since Native Americans settled around it thousands of years ago,” explained Rotary’s Environmental Projects Committee Chair Patrick Wright. “Members of our Rotary Club have been concerned about the health of the Little Harpeth River, so we decided to orchestrate this effort again this year to clean its banks. Last year we removed over 120 bags of trash from our stretch of the river. This service project had a direct benefit to all Brentwood citizens.”
