South Knoxville's Goose Creek Cleanup
In May, Keep Knoxville Beautiful and the Tennessee Clean Water Network hosted the first of three cleanups of Goose Creek in South Knoxville.
On May 23, volunteers from local Knoxville Aveda salons came out to Mary Vestal Park for a day of service. Volunteers collected 13 tires, an office chair, a grocery cart, and over 1,700 pounds of litter from the portion of the creek that flows through Mary Vestal Park.
The second cleanup will be held on Saturday, June 18, at 10:00 AM at Mary Vestal Park. The cleanup will serve as a TnAchieves Community Service Day as well as a community-wide service event.
Volunteers can sign up to participate here.
