Happy 70th Birthday, TWF!

As of Feb. 12, 2016, the Tennessee Wildlife Federation has been serving as champion of our state’s great outdoors for an amazing 70 years. It was on that date in 1946 that a group of 53 sportswriters, business leaders, and outdoorsmen gathered at the Read House in Chattanooga to put into place an organization that would forever change the landscape of conservation in Tennessee. They created the Tennessee Conservation League (TCL), what we know today as the Tennessee Wildlife Federation.
