On a wet, cold morning our team was ready with warm smiles to help one of Knoxville’s treasures, Ijams Nature Center. Ijams, located in South Knoxville, lies next to the Tennessee River. Supporting local wildlife, recreational trails and an educational center Ijams continue to help support local culture.
The Tennessee Holistic Wellness (THW) team participated in the 29th annual Ijams River Rescue. Although it was a day most people stayed inside, Linda, Jim, Laura and Bob were excited to help Knoxville not only “Stay Scruffy” but stay clean in the process.
Spending several hours, the team were able to clean up their assigned area, removing trash that was potentially harmful to not only visitors of the park but also wildlife.
THW’s continues to focus on helping people and nature regain a sense of wholeness. By participating in the Ijam’s River Rescue our team was able to maximize efforts to affect a positive change in Knoxville.
