MTSU Stormwater Program strives to provide education for streams and rivers in our community.  We also provide educational and volunteer opportunities to our campus population.  Some of our projects have included campus cleanups, stream cleanups, wetland remediation, tree plantings, invasive plant removal, elementary environmental education and outreach booths.  We would love for you to join in and be part of our clean stream experience!

On February 24, 2018, TEC will be planting 250,000 native tree seedlings across Tennessee.  This will be the largest community tree-planting event in Tennessee history.  The Council is seeking sponsors and donors to cover the costs of seedlings.  They also would like volunteers who agree to plant the trees!
