Clean Streams Initiative Fundraiser
September 21, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - October 5, 2020 @ 11:00 am
Help us host more stream cleanups! We are trying to raise $6,000 for our Clean Streams Initiative to reach more communities in the basin with litter prevention education and cleanup resources and events. If you want to directly support our stream cleanups, please donate through the link in the event description.
Cumberland Kayak will be matching up to $1000 to any donations made from now till October 16th. A long time partner, Cumberland Kayak is dedicated to cleaning up our streams and rivers, donating staff time and kayaks for river cleanups, donating 1% of their sales to support cleanups, and even signing up for our Adopt-A-Stream program to continually clean the Cumberland River.
The Compact launched the Clean Streams Initiative to educate residents in the Cumberland River Basin about litter pollution, engage volunteers to clean up our streams and rivers, and offer more services and stewardship opportunities in communities beyond Nashville, TN.
Since 2017, the Compact has facilitated over 225 cleanups all across the Basin, reaching communities in counties like Montgomery, Robertson, Williamson, Cheatham, Rutherford, Sumner, Putnam, White, Warren, Grundy, Jackson, Davidson, and more! These cleanups engaged over 2600 volunteers and resulted in over 4,000 bags of trash removed from our watershed.
That’s a lot of trash! More importantly, we work to educate volunteers on the impacts of litter pollution and demonstrate the need for action by individual residents, communities, and governments to help put an end to litter in our waters.
We rely on grants and donations to help bring event coordination, supplies, and volunteer recruitment to communities across the basin and we need your help to continue this work!
