Calling all nature enthusiasts and environmental advocates! The City of Hendersonville Stormwater Division is proud to announce its upcoming Stream Clean-Up Event, scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 1, 2024. 

Join us to preserve and protect Hendersonville’s rivers and streams. The initiative, spearheaded by the City Stormwater Division, aims to uphold the integrity of our local waterways while fostering community engagement and environmental stewardship. 

Volunteers will gather at Mud Creek, spanning from 7th Ave. to N. Main Street, from 10 am to 1 pm. This hands-on opportunity allows participants to make a tangible difference by removing debris and waste from local waterways. 

“This event presents a chance for residents to actively contribute to the well-being of our environment,” says Michael Huffman, Stormwater Division Manager. “By joining forces, we can collectively reduce pollution and promote the longevity of Hendersonville’s water resources for generations to come.” 

Participants are encouraged to come prepared with outdoor attire and closed-toe shoes, as well as a reusable water bottle. The City will provide essential volunteer materials, including garbage bags, gloves, safety vests, and water. Additionally, the City is equipped to accommodate up to eight individuals with canoes, though attendees are encouraged to bring their own canoes/kayaks for added convenience.
