A representative of CAESER will be at the "Loosahatchie River Watershed Event" on Thursday, August 20 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Bon Lin Elementary School located at 3940 N. Germantown Parkway in Bartlett, Tennessee.
The free event offers the public an opportunity to learn more about the Loosahatchie River Watershed, which is 738 square miles and located in parts of five counties, including Shelby, Fayette, and Tipton. There will be door prizes, hands-on exhibits and light refreshments. One of the door prizes is a rain barrel.
A watershed is a land area that drains into a particular stream or lake. Everyone lives in a watershed. A healthy watershed is important because these waters supply water for agriculture, habitat for plants and animals, as well as recreational opportunities like swimming, fishing, and boating.
The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation's Division of Water Resources is hosting the event. For additional information about this watershed meeting, go HERE.
Friday through Saturday, September 11-13, 2015
