Visit any of the links above to learn about our core strategies.
Our vision is bold, but our strategies are sound. We save Tennessee Treasures and Corridor Connections by conducting capital campaigns, collaborating with public agencies and through outright purchase or by conservation easements (voluntary agreements with private landowners that permanently restrict land from development but keep it in private ownership). We award small grants to other conservation groups through a matching grant program, State Park Connections. Over $300,000 in grants have funded more than 185 projects across Tennessee. Through education and advocacy we work for greenway planning and increased conservation funding. Additionally we fundraise to buy natural treasures, accept land donations, and through our Emergency Land Bank, we make loans available to other private or public organizations. Our work has saved more than 40 treasures including famous Tennessee landmarks such as Gateway to Mound Bottom, Black Mountain, Devilstep Hollow Cave and Head of Sequatchie Springs, Randolph Bluff and more.
