Founded in 1999 the Harpeth River Watershed Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the State Scenic Harpeth River and clean water in TN. The Harpeth River Watershed Association (HRWA) leverages the scientific, technical training, and experience of our staff and advisers with the efforts of a diverse corps of volunteers who are crucial to every aspect of our work. Current programs include: River Restoration & Wildlife Protection, Water Quality Protection, and Outreach & Recreation. HRWA is the only organization which focuses its efforts on the entire Harpeth River, from its origins in Rutherford County to its union with the Cumberland River along the border of Dickson and Cheatham Counties.
Harpeth River Watershed Association is committed to restoring and maintaining the ecological balance of our watershed amidst the various human uses of the landscape. HRWA forges partnerships that provide information, training, and activities that enable homeowners, landowners, families, farmers, businesses, researchers, and government agencies to directly enhance areas of the Harpeth River Watershed.
