Harpeth River State Park

Harpeth River Go Green

The mission of the Tennessee State Parks Go Green With Us program is to preserve and protect our state parks through sustainable park operations, resource conservation, and recycling. Program components cover a diverse array of initiatives, including energy and water conservation through equipment and operations upgrades, recycling programs, projects to enhance ecosystem health, and erosion control, among many others.

  • Harpeth River State Park helps keep the river ecosystem clean by conducting controlled burns, encouraging growth of native grasses and vegetation.
  • Staff and the Friends of Harpeth River State Park host invasive plant removal and volunteer litter pickup events.
