Family farms and working lands are a vital part of Tennessee. Farms help maintain rural character, offer tourism opportunities, sustain local economies, promote wildlife habitat, and provide local sources of food. We are the only conservation organization with a statewide, proactive farmland protection program in Tennessee.

Forests and wetlands are critical habitat for plants and animals and they filter water before it reaches our rivers and streams. We conserve forested areas, which also support sustainable timber for our economy and provides people places to disconnect from daily stressors.

Tennessee is one of the most biologically diverse states in the country. We conserve areas where plants and animals live and thrive.

Historic sites and landscapes provide a unique window into the past. We conserve places that offer educational reminders of the significant history of our state, including Century Farms dating back generations, battlefields, and sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

We all need places to get outside. We conserve areas for recreation, including city parks to relax in, rock climbing destinations to conquer, and rugged trails that attract residents and visitors from across the world.

From sweeping mountain vistas to views enjoyed on a drive through Tennessee’s backroads, our work protects the character of the Volunteer State – fostering a sense of place that is distinctly Tennessee.
