 Honoring Jessica Graham
TSRA had a beautiful day on the Harpeth River on October 3 in memory of former TSRA operations manager Jessica Graham. Thank you to the many volunteers, friends and families, and to Jessica's family, who joined us for the river cleanup in Jessica's honor.
Special thanks to Friends of Harpeth River State Park, Town of Kingston Springs, Kingston Springs City Commissioner Glenn Remick, Harpeth River State Park, Foggy Bottom Canoe and Kayak Rental and the South Cheatham Advocate for making this cleanup possible.
Be sure to read The Exchange's article on Jessica and her legacy of river keeping and environmental stewardship.
