Back by popular demand, our mid-winter Adopt-a-Stream River Bank Clean-up and Open House is coming up on February, 23rd, 2019.
This year, Wildwood is teaming up with the Tennessee Environmental Council (TEC) to be one of over 150 tree seedling distribution centers across the state of Tennessee. The goal of TEC’s annual project is to plant 250,000 trees across the state each year, representing an economic value of $1.4M for the Volunteer State!
Sign up here through February 10th to reserve your tree seedlings, or just come out and help us plant at Wildwood as we spruce the place up for another great season of summer fun! We have dozens of Red Oak, Pine, Redbud and Willow Plum trees to plant and distribute, so be sure to reserve yours today!
Did you know that Wildwood won the 2018 BLUE RIBBON for MOST VOLUNTEERS across Middle Tennessee in the Cumberland River Compact’s (CRC) Adopt-a-Stream program? It’s true! And we are being honored at CRC’s awards celebration in downtown Nashville on Wednesday February 27th, 2019. Want to joint the celebration?
Contact: email@example.com and we will be sure that your name is on the guest list for this big event!
On what looked like another rainy February day in 2018, Wildwood Resort and Marina hosted our very FIRST annual Adopt-a-Stream River Bank Cleanup and Open House.
Despite a gloomy forecast, SIXTY hearty souls showed up at Wildwood, fanned out over a 1 mile stretch of the river that we claimed as part of the Cumberland River Compact’s Adopt-a-Stream project, and picked up no fewer than 100 bags of garbage along the shoreline. TRASH GONE!
Volunteers celebrated with hot chili and drinks at Timberloft Lakeside, heard a talk on the quality of river life on this stretch of the Cumberland, and shared Wildwood’s development plans for the 2018 season, including renovation of the Wildwood Lodge and the introduction of our 2018 “Newbird on the Water” singer/songwriter series. We all now know how that turned out!
The rain that weekend never materialized, and a truly wonderful time was had by all!
