The ‘X-Stream Squad’ meets monthly from April through October on a Saturday to clean trash out of the banks and streams throughout the city, removing litter from potentially polluting the area. Many of the streams in La Vergne, including Hurricane Creek, flow into Percy Priest Lake. The La Vergne X-Stream Squad was formed in 2021.
“This is a great volunteer opportunity for our community,” says Stormwater Coordinator Alexandra Thompson. “Our streams are extremely important to our ecosystem and the animals who depend on them.”
Registration is required for participation. Gloves, bags, and bottled water will be provided.
