NPWW Stream Clean Up With The Conservation Kid Held Monday

Monday, May 20, 2019

The Chattanooga Department of Public Works joined with Hamilton Place and The Conversation Kid, Cash Daniels, to remove litter from the Friar Branch Stream on Monday. Over 40 bags of litter, several grocery carts, and other large debris were collected and removed from the stream. 

Cash Daniels, a nine-year-old aquatic conservationist, stole the hearts of Hamilton Place’s management team when he and his younger brother, Colt, entered the shopping center’s student art competition. The theme was Not All Heroes Wear Capes, and Cash won third place with his painting of Steve Irwin.
The caption read, “The message is simple: love and conserve our wildlife.” Colt won first place with his painting of his hero - his older brother, Cash.

Cash is a hero not only to his brother but has gained national acclaim for his conservation efforts - including a social media shout out from actor Mark Wahlberg. From winning awards, to teaching other kids to presenting to the city council, he’s spread the word far and wide. He’s also launched his own company selling sustainable items and written a book, One Small Piece. After seeing the trash collecting in the stream that snakes around Hamilton Place’s campus, he’s leading the charge in cleaning it up this Public Works Week.
