Watershed Event

On October 20, 2014, TDEC hosted a watershed event for the Stones River Watershed. This was the fourth event focusing on the Stones River watershed since we started implementing the watershed management approach in 1996. This meeting brought together many different agencies, groups, schools and citizens who live, work and play in this watershed. Displays filled the dining hall at the Patterson Park Community Center in Murfreesboro and offered a great chance for hands on education for all ages.
