Stewards VISTA: Harpeth Conservancy Community Outreach
 
 
 
Harpeth Conservancy is a science-based conservation organization dedicated to protecting clean water and rivers in Tennessee. Freshwater ecosystems (rivers, streams, lakes, and wetlands) provide a critical foundation for the social and economic well-being of a community by providing clean water, a buffer from flood damage, habitat for wildlife, and opportunities for recreation. The communities along the Harpeth River in middle Tennessee are among the fastest growing in the nation. This explosive growth will result in increased pressure on freshwater resources in the form of pollution, water withdrawals, and deforestation throughout the region, with potential consequences for both human and ecosystem health.
