A staggering 90 percent of Tennessee land is privately owned. That means public resources, such as wildlife and water, must find a way to coexist with private interests. Meanwhile, management for public lands is chronically underfunded. Land use today determines the future of wildlife and the great outdoors for generations, or possibly forever.
Whether you love our public lands or recognize the essential role of better management of private lands, every Tennessean must speak out to support better stewardship of our wetlands, grasslands, and forests.
This pillar of conservation needs to be permanently and fully funded—one bill could fix that.
