Starting In late July and lasting about a month, Sewanee and partners will be launching the Tenneswim project, an end-to-end characterization of the Tennessee River: its general health, the presence of microplastics and heavy metals, the health of river fauna, and other measures. This scientific and public education project will be conducted through an amazing feat of physical endurance, with a German researcher and long-distance swimmer swimming the entire length of the river. Grants from the Lyndhurst and Riverview Foundations have led the way as donors continue to support this project.
