FitFitWild inspires river and trail cleanup in Nashville area or "backyard ecotourism". We can all practice ecotourism literally in our backyard as shown below.
Mc Gavock Middle School Trail
What was found in the creek along the trail March 18.
After picking up
Trash, scrap and recycling
This is what we picked up from the bottom of Mc Gavock Middle School Trail behind the water treatment plan and the Stones River trail head at Heartland Park. Things that make you say "Hmmm..."?
Trash left on the Stones River bank
April 5th after the river went down at the pedestrian bridge by Heartland Dr a lot of trash was left on the bank. Unfortunately, most of the trash caught at the bridge went down the river when the water level returned to normal.
Stones River Greenway bridge after picking up
Two of us spent over an hour picking up torn plastic bags, plastics of all shapes, cans, glass bottles etc... This is one of our retirement hobbies: we call it "local ecotourism".
Recycling and re-use
Recycling and re-use not including trash.
Our Nashville TN tap water comes from the Cumberland River. The river water quality directly affects our city water. Keeping our sidewalks, our streets, our trails, our greenways free of trash is crucial. It is literally not hard to use a trash can.
For the health and comfort of our communities Join our "backyard ecotourism" as we do our river and trail cleanup in Nashville or wherever we go.
