Where Every Family Matters

Spring Hill Looking for Volunteers to Help Plant Trees Along Rutherford Creek

TEC is partnering with Spring Hill Parks and Recreation in planting 1500 trees along Rutherford Creek through a grant from Tennessee Agricultural Enhancement Program (TAEP).

This is a family-friendly event so grab the kids and help them reach their goal of 1500 trees planted.

Tree planting will take place along a stretch of Rutherford Creek located near Fisher Park on Port Royal Road in Spring Hill, TN. This event will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 13. Meet at 4285 Port Royal Road.

It is important for them to get an accurate number of total volunteers so upon arrival, participants will be asked to sign in at the registration tent. Water will be provided but it is recommended that participants bring their own if they are able. In addition, Spring Hill Parks and Recreation would appreciate anyone who can bring their own spades or shovels to do so. Although Spring Hill Parks and Rec has a number of shovels available, they encourage participants to bring their own to ensure there is enough tools for everyone to get in on the fun.
