LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — It’s an important part of Lynchburg life. The Mulberry Creek is where Bill Dance learned to fish and where our famous distillery ducks occasionally wet their feathers. So it only makes sense to spend the day after Earth Day showing it a little hometown love.

To celebrate Earth Day, Metro Mayor’s Bonnie Lewis’s office is organizing a Spring Clean the Creek Day for Saturday, April 23 from 8 a.m. to noon. Volunteers should plan to get wet and dirty by providing their own boots, gloves, and safety glasses. It’s also a B.Y.O.T (bring your own tools) event, so anyone with extra shovels, rakes, trimmers, and weed eaters should bring those too.

If you’d like to participate, call Mayor Lewis’s office at 931-759-7076 so they can get a head count of everyone who plans to attend. They ask that all children be accompanied by an adult. •
