What we're about

In today's go-go-go, everybody's behind, got to get more done world, it seems like our work week keeps us stressed to the max. That makes our weekends even more important, as a way to get out and get away from all the stresses of our jobs. But sometimes we're just too busy to find different things to do or meet new people. One group of Tennesseans has found a way around that time crunch. They meet up through the internet...first on a web page, then live and in person...and always with a common goal of outdoor adventure. Get to know Nashville Hiking Meetup.

In addition to our regular hikes and other outdoor adventures, we also plan social events and organize community volunteer projects such as park cleanup and trail building!

Get exercise,

. Make new friends,
. . Respect the environment,
. . . Give back to the community,
. . . . Laugh a lot

Sunday Morning with the Compact Crew

Needs a location

YOU MUST REGISTER USING THIS LINK!

cumberlandrivercompact.volunteerhub.com

Kick off your weekend with us and enjoy coffee, friends, and learning about how to protect our environment while improving it! Every weekend, the Compact Crew will be out doing something to help our environment. Whether it's sprucing up a rain garden, picking up litter, or pulling invasive plants, you'll meet some new people, learn something new, and spend a few hours in the sunshine.

We'll be working on a rain garden this Sunday! By helping us spruce up and maintain rain gardens, volunteers are helping protect local streams and provide habitat for local pollinators.

Volunteers should anticipate digging, planting, and mulching. We provide all tools and materials. Volunteers should bring water, snacks, and optionally their own pair of gloves if they have them. Additionally, volunteers should dress in weather appropriate clothing that they can get dirty and wear closed toe shoes.
