While you're doing your Spring Cleaning, set all of your old electronics aside and bring them in to e-cycle, you'll feel great keeping them out of our landfills.
LRWA could use a few hours of your time. We need volunteers to help with light office work (filing, database entry and record keeping), social media and website updates, and minor computer maintenance and repairs. Just a few hours of your time would be very helpful. We also need more volunteers to participate in our Stream Monitoring Program. If you are interested or want to know more, give us a shout out here.
Come check out our display at the library! We've included the latest draft of our Blueway Map, which will be available to the public soon! There are also pictures from our Stream School for Kids and informational posters about our upcoming events. Our display will be in the lobby of the library until April 14th.

Blount County Parks and Recreation
April 13th, 20th, 27th and May 4th (Rain date May 11th)
LRWA is teaming up with Parks and Rec to bring you a modified Stream School after school series in April!
Stream School is a fun way to learn about stream health and water quality. This watershed program is based on STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) concepts and will incorporate environmental, chemical and aquatic sciences and stream flow mathematics. We'll measure river flow, identify macroinvertebrates, and run chemical tests.
To register for the 4-week program, visit the Parks and Rec
website. Space is limited!
Come join us for our annual Spring river cleanup and volunteer appreciation event! Pick up a "clean up in a box" during the month of April and choose any area in our adopted sections at your convenience! We'll provide gloves and bags. Contact
firstname.lastname@example.org for supply pick up.
And/Or, join us on Saturday, April 25th at 9am for a community-wide cleanup and volunteer appreciation event! Any individuals who have volunteered to pick up debris in the month of April are welcomed to enjoy a light breakfast and music by
Pistol Creek Catch of the Day. All volunteers will also receive a tshirt! We'll also help individuals interested in boating identify sections that need to be cleaned.
