“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
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 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.
