New EnviroActivism Opportunities from Tennessee Environmental Council

Written by on August 31, 2015

My favorite type of activism is that which allows getting up close and personal with nature. The Tennessee Environmental Council offers a number of opportunities like these in September and October.
The group, in partnership with the Tennessee chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation, presents a day of caring for 700 Restoration American Chestnut trees recently planted in Williamson County next Thursday.  According to the organization, Franklin boasts
the largest chestnut tree orchard in the state. And they are asking for folks to volunteer there for three hours on Thursday, Sept. 3, to spread mulch among the young trees. The work will go from 9 am until noon, and then volunteers will enjoy lunch. If that sounds like an activity that is up your tree, get further details and register to volunteer.
TEC hosts another great activism opportunity on Oct. 3: The Great Tennessee River Rescue. This is a volunteer effort to help clean up area rivers and streams across the Volunteer State. To be involved in clearing waterways in your community, sign up now! Details and registration can be found at this link.
