Volunteers are being recruited for this coing Tuesday (3/11/2014)morning from 9:00 until 3:00 in the afternoon. Help is needed to clean up Sinking Creek and the adjacent wetland between McAlister’s Deli and Murfreesboro Animal Clinic at 1616 Memorial Boulevard.

The project seeks to remove trash and debris that are clogging the stream. Volunteers will need to bring gloves, work boots, bottled water and snacks, sunscreen, bug spray and waders, if available.

Lunch will not be provided. Volunteers will be dismissed for lunch between noon and 1:00PM, but there are plenty of inexpensive restaurants adjacent to the property.
