A NATIONAL FISH AND WILDLIFE FOUNDATION PARTNERSHIP PROJECT
The Cumberland River Compact partnered with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to turn a park in Montgomery County into a natural greenspace for its citizens. Wall Branch in Rotary Park suffered from man-made pollution. Loss of vegetation and upstream development resulted in sedimentation (dirt) issues. This rehabilitation project aimed to remediate those issues and add value to an important green space in Montgomery County. The project consisted of invasive species removal, planting of native trees, establishing wildflower meadows, and the participation of hundreds of volunteers!
PROJECT SPONSORS: Montgomery County Parks and Recreation, Montgomery County Building and Codes, The Cumberland River Compact, and Tennessee State University Agriculture Extension.
