Friends,

2019 was an impactful year for Tennessee Wildlife Federation—from policy action and for participation in our outdoor programs. The groundswell of support that has emerged from every corner of Tennessee has shown that you realize the importance of our great outdoors and are willing to take a stand to conserve it.

It has been so inspirational to see you show up in so many ways to support your natural resources. People of all backgrounds and viewpoints are coming together for clean air and water, healthy habitats, and diverse wildlife because—simply—without those things, everything else stops.

Your time spent in our great outdoors, however you recreate, has spurred a revival and is making an impact for conservation every single day. We hope that in this review of 2019, you find inspiration to keep fighting for the issues that are so crucial to ensuring Tennessee remains the biologically diverse and beautiful state that it is.

Your support has energized us—and we thank you for allowing us to continue to be your voice for wildlife on Capitol Hill throughout our state.

Sincerely,


Michael Butler
Chief Executive Officer

Kendall McCarter
Chief Development Officer

A Growing Organization

Tennessee Wildlife Federation is governed by a volunteer board of directors and maintains an advisory board to expand and increase our ability to affect wildlife conservation across Tennessee.

And thanks to the support of involved sportsmen and conservationists, we were able to expand our professional team in 2019. With this added expertise and capacity, the Federation continues to earn its spot among the strongest National Wildlife Federation affiliates.
