SoundForest.org To Improve Watershed On Historic Glen Leven Estate
Nonprofit teaming with the TN Department of Forestry to plant trees along Mill Creek watershed
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (March 6, 2013) – SoundForest.org will be planting trees on Saturday, March 9th, from 12:30p.m. to 3:00 p.m. along the Mill Creek Watershed which runs through the Glen Leven Estate, located on Franklin Road south of Woodmont Boulevard. Managed by the Land Trust of TN, the estate is the largest piece of Nashville’s Civil War battlefield still intact. To date, SoundForest volunteers have planted more than 17,500 trees in thirteen states and seven countries.
“On January 21, SoundForest InfanTREE volunteers planted 700 trees on the Glen Leven estate,” said SoundForest founder Thomas Solinsky. “The March project will focus on planting trees along the Mill Creek waterway to establish a riparian buffer zone to help improve water quality by slowing erosion and decreasing sediment in the creek. The project will also decreasing non-point source pollutants and providing shade to the waterways. The goal of these plantings is to help improve the watershed quality allowing for improved wildlife habitat for many endangered wildlife species including the Nashville Crayfish.”
A volunteer party will follow the planting at M.L. Rose Craft Beer & Burgers located at 2535 Franklin Pike, sponsored by Nashville’s Jackalope Brewing Company and BountyBev, Tennessee’s American craft beer-only distributor.
