Duck River Cleanup

The Duck River is one of the most beautiful and aquatically diverse streams in North America. As it meanders through Middle Tennessee it’s used for fishing, boating, and even as a source for drinking water. That’s why it’s important to keep the Duck clear of trash and natural debris. It’s not easy. Uncaring people can easily pollute rivers like the Duck with discarded tires, old boats, and even a shopping cart or two. But thankfully there are volunteers like the ones we met near Columbia, Tennessee whose love for the river includes getting down and dirty. Wild Side Guide Janet Ivey tells us more.

The Duck River Watershed Association was just one of many groups that helped organize the cleanup. Visit its website at www.duckriverwatershed.org. You can learn more about the Duck River at www.tennessee.gov/environment/na/natareas/duckriv/ and www.nature.org (put Duck River in the search space).

The Duck River cleanup occurs every year on the fourth Saturday in June.
