Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Nashville District (Corps) has participated in a cooperative community effort in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for the development of environmental preservation and education opportunities in the Murfreesboro area. This project is developed pursuant to an authorization in the Water Resources Development Act of 1996. This effort resulted in the identification of potential wetlands restoration and environmental education projects for the community at four target sites. These sites include: Murfree Spring, Black Fox Spring, Nickajack Trace, and Oaklands Spring. All sites lie within Rutherford County, Tennessee and are in, or adjacent to the City of Murfreesboro, approximately 40 miles southeast of Nashville. If implemented, the project would provide for increased value of the target wetlands and for environmental education opportunity. The target values to be increased are biodiversity, overall habitat quality, and educational resources. This EA evaluates the impacts of the wetland habitat restoration activities and environmental education plans at each of the four sites and compares these impacts with those of the no action alternative.
