NASHVILLE CLEAN WATER PROJECT: PERCY PREIST LAKE CLEAN-UP
Saturday, September 13th from 8am to Noon
The Largest Water Cleanup in Nashville’s History
Way to go Nashville, we’re kickin’ butt on trash.
You can make a huge difference on Saturday, September 13 by participating in the second Nashville Clean Water Project. We have trash bags, gloves and sunscreen for you… we have snacks, hand sanitizer, T-shirts and hats… …we even have gobs of giveaways and live entertainment. It’s the largest water cleanup in Nashville’s history, and, oh yes, it’s absolutely free.
Saturday, September 13; 8 a.m. until noon. Please REGISTER for your three hour block of time. Departures to specific lake locations at 8 a.m., 8:30 a.m., and 9 a.m. Percy Priest needs your help!
Our first cleanup in May 2008 was huge — the largest Nashville has ever seen! Together we gifted more than 1,800 collective work-hours to the environment and filled five (5) commercial roll-off dumpsters from Waste Management, Inc. with trash. Bottles, cans, plastics, coolers, tires, styrofoam, chairs & BBQ grills, full-sized traffic light, office copier, a residential air conditioner, even a mannequin arm. All told, we collected 100 cubic yards of trash – more than an average shopping mall produces in a month!
Unfortunately, that’s just 40% of the estimated surface trash at Percy Priest Lake – even Music City’s largest water cleanup wasn’t enough. So join us as we continue this very necessary public campaign against litter on Percy Priest Lake’s 24 islands and 213 miles of shoreline.
Volunteers will meet and park free at the Poole Knob Recreation Area. Do not check in at Nashville Shores — this Fall event is on the other side of the lake, staging at the Poole Knob Recreation Area, 493 JONES MILL ROAD in Lavergne.
From downtown Nashville, take I-24/I-40 east to I-24 east 15 miles to exit 66B, right on Sam Ridley Parkway 3 miles, exit right on to Hwy 41N Murfreesboro Pk 1.5 miles, right on Fergus Rd 2 miles, right on Jones Mill R 4 miles. Poole Knobs Campground is the first left past the park entrance sign – follow sign arrow.
You, your friends, your church groups, your neighborhood association, your colleagues, your family & you get the point. Mother Nature needs everyone!
Absolutely free, and you’ll even receive a few thank you gifts, too.
Trash bags, gloves, sunscreen, snacks, hand sanitizer, T-shirts, hats, new friends, a great afternoon, and good karma for helping Mother Nature.
