Tennessee Wildlife Federation was instrumental in former Governor Haslam’s Tennessee H2O Initiative and the development of the TN H2O Road Map, Tennessee’s first-ever statewide water plan.
In addition to co-chairing the Natural Resources Working Group with The Nature Conservancy, the Federation co-wrote the natural resources and the recreation and tourism portions of the plan. This included developing recommendations for the TN H2O Road Map designed to improve water-based recreation and tourism throughout the state.
To help reflect as many points of view as possible, we convened environmental, recreation, and tourism focus groups that included experts from across the state.
TN H2O will be unveiled soon and the public will have the chance to share their thoughts before it goes to the Tennessee General Assembly for possible adoption.
