RCWA needs volunteers for stream bank stabilization August 15

The Richland Creek Watershed Alliance is looking for volunteers to help stabilize an area of stream bank on Richland Creek on Saturday, August 15, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

RCWA is partnering with the Tennessee Environmental Council and RCWA are partnering to install revetments (cedar timbers wrapped in coco mat) on the eroded stream bank to prevent further deterioration.

RCWA is also working with the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency to collect instream flow data (biology, geomorphology, water quality, and hydrologic information) from Richland Creek. This is related to water withdrawals along the creek, and how these withdrawals are affecting the stream. RCWA is collecting volunteer names for this ongoing project and then following up with volunteers as study dates are scheduled. This field work typically takes place on Fridays, and volunteers can help in the morning, afternoon or the whole day.

If you are interested in helping with either activity, please email Monette Rebecca at rcwa@comcast.net.
