The Harpeth River Watershed Association (HRWA) in middle Tennessee is dedicated to preserving and restoring the ecological health of the Harpeth River and its Watershed. Our work leverages the scientific and technical training and experience of our staff and advisers with the efforts of a diverse corps of volunteers who are crucial to every aspect of our programs. Our board members, volunteer leadership, and hundreds of supporters are county commissioners, local city staff and officials, government agency staff, concerned citizens, farmers, business leaders, scientists, engineers, and community leaders who share our commitment to having an ecologically healthy river.

Our Outreach & Education program works with schools, summer camps, church groups, and the general public to promote awareness of issues relating to clean water and to foster an appreciation for the wildlife that call the Harpeth home. As part of this program, HRWA staff and volunteers lead groups in exploring the aquatic wildlife in a stream and show how to use the findings to determine if the water is clean. Staff are also available for presentations to classrooms, civic group meetings, and other events. If you are affiliated with a group that would be interested in any of these activities, please contact Cooper Breeden at cooperbreeden@harpethriver.org.
