The Cumberland River Basin, one of the most biodiverse regions in the country, stretches about 18,000 square miles including all or portions of over 70 Tennessee and Kentucky counties, and is home to nearly 2.5 million people, thousands of plant and animal species, and over 22,000 miles of streams and rivers. Cumberland River Compact is a non-profit organization with the goal to give people the tools to be smart, impactful stewards of their watershed and to constructively partner within policy planning with government agencies within the Cumberland River Basin. Their mission is to enhance the health and enjoyment of the Cumberland River and its tributaries through action, education, and collaboration. Franklin is located within the Harpeth River Watershed, one of the main tributaries for the Cumberland River. The City of Franklin is proud to be partnered with Cumberland River Compact and work together with our growing community to improve our natural and built environments through various projects and activities.
