Annual Meeting Recap!

Harpeth Conservancy's 2018 Annual Meeting took place at the Franklin Theatre in downtown Franklin. It followed a donor gathering and preceded our third annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival. We are pleased to report that John Dab and Brian Wilson were re-elected directors of Harpeth Conservancy, for terms ending in 2021. The film festival was a great success attracting long-time member and drawing community members as well. The collection of 7 short films explored National Wild & Scenic Rivers, light pollution, saving mountain ranges from mining, ultra sports and more. Attendees took home soil tests and homeowner tips for protecting water, won giveaways, and signed up for Water Reporter. If you missed our Annual Meeting, you can find our presentation about our 2017 accomplishments and new 2018 initiatives HERE.
