What better way to spend spring break than helping out in the great outdoors?
Over the course of the last month, Hands On Nashville had the opportunity to work with hundreds of volunteers from across the country to complete 13 meaningful projects supporting our environment. Now that’s what we like to call a “Green Break!”
Collectively, these fantastic collegiate, faith-based, and high school groups completed home energy savings projects in 6 Nashville homes, planted 500 trees, cleared 7,000 pounds of trash from local waterways, and supported 1.9 acres of local ecosystems with invasive plant removal.
Here’s a look back at just a few of the green ups and cleanups!

Special thanks to each group of volunteers for your energy and efforts to restore and support Nashville’s environmental landscape, and to Hands On Nashville’s Environmental Restoration AmeriCorps member, Ashlee Shultz, and Home Energy Savings AmeriCorps Member, Meghan Scholl, for leading the way.
