The EnSafe Memphis Office Celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day with Service Project

The EnSafe Memphis office honored Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with a service project to support the Wolf River Conservancy (WRC), a non-profit local land trust that protect lands along the Wolf River in Southwest Tennessee as a public natural resource.  Not only is the WRC an EnSafe client, but the organization’s mission aligns with EnSafe’s commitment to sustainability and service!

The WRC is currently overseeing the construction of the Wolf River Greenway, a paved pedestrian pathway that will extend a total of 36 miles from the Mississippi River, along the Wolf River, to communities east of Memphis. This important project will make it possible for Tennesseans in urban areas to connect more closely to nature.

For Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the WRC organized a trail building and maintenance project for a section of the Wolf River Greenway.  Eleven EnSafers from the Memphis office participated in this trail building and maintenance project, including the following individuals:

  • Grace Lowry
  • Corey Coleman
  • Ben Brantley
  • Kevin Arick
  • Aaron Conti
  • Steffen Matthews
  • Zach Womack
  • Scott Campbell
  • Norm Kennel
  • Brian Boone
  • Leo Old

The Wolf River Greenway project is near and dear to these EnSafers, most of whom have provided engineering and environmental services along the Wolf River for a variety of stormwater and habitat preservation projects. EnSafe’s contributions to the area have helped to ensure the Wolf River and its surrounding territories remains safe and accessible to area residents and that the region is prime for commercial, residential, and recreational use.

EnSafe’s volunteers were proud to serve the WRC on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in honor of a great man, and the WRC was appreciative of our help! We look forward to more opportunities to help our community.
