Land & Habitat
Every year, Tennessee Wildlife Federation tracks the legislation at state and federal levels to advocate for bills that will advance conservation and against those that will negatively impact wildlife, lands, outdoor recreation, and more.
From songbirds in the trees to blooming native wildflowers to flowing rivers teeming with wildlife, Tennessee is incredibly diverse—but it wasn’t always that way.
As of June 2023, the Federation has enhanced and protected more than 15,000 acres of land across the state and planted more than 500,000 trees.
This year, the Federation celebrated 17 individuals and companies from across the state who are conserving our wildlife and wild places.
Clearer, more consistent clean water protections for streams, fisheries, and wetlands that provide habitat and protect communities from storms are at stake.
On average, more than 28,000 vehicles travel on I-40 between Tennessee and North Carolina every day. This interstate cuts through incredible wildlife habitat in the Great Smoky Mountains. Wildlife are either restricted to one side of the highway or have to find a way to cross it to access essential resources such as food, water, mating sites, and cover.
Imagine: it’s early fall. The sun is shining. You’re driving west from Middle Tennessee. As you get beyond the cities, you look out the window at the landscape. Trees, a mix of greens and yellows and oranges, are all around. The trees begin to give way to openings with towering stalks of corn and vast fields of soybeans. The land is at its most fruitful—and it brings you a sense of peace.
As one of the largest organizations in Tennessee dedicated to the conservation of the state’s wildlife and natural resources, Tennessee Wildlife Federation has seen the impact a dedicated outdoor journalist can have on conservation.
A new mural encouraging people to support Tennessee CLEAN, an initiative of Tennessee Wildlife Federation, was recently unveiled at Patagonia’s Nashville location.
