Habitat Conservation, Responsible Land Stewardship

“Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.”

— Theodore Roosevelt

A key component to our mission is our commitment to habitat conservation

All species of Tennessee wildlife and fish must have quality habitat to live and thrive in. We strive to promote wise conservation practices across the state. One program that we are currently working on is our Hatchie River Wetland Mitigation Project, in West Tennessee. We have also assisted TWRA with land acquisitions across the state.

TWRF believes we should not only seek to conserve the resources that we have, but it is also our responsibility to be good stewards of our resources

We are involved in several aspects of stewardship throughout the state. The Tennessee Stream Mitigation Program is the nation’s premier in-lieu-fee program for stream mitigation and restoration. Tennessee’s Watchable Wildlife website is a great way for novice and professional wildlife watchers to get out and learn more about the species around them in Tennessee. We are also assisting TWRA with its Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) Monitoring Program. This will help ensure that Tennessee’s deer herd is healthy for years to come.
