Tennessee Environmental Council
Our Mission: Educating and advocating for the conservation and improvement of Tennessee’s environment, communities, and public health since 1970. Our Vision: A Tennessee that embraces natural resources as the backbone of our communities, economy and quality of life for all present and future generations.
Tennessee is one of the most biodiverse inland states in the nation. Our natural resources form the backbone of our economy, quality of life and heritage. For over forty years, the Council has been working to protect the environment in Tennessee. The Council’s efforts have been successful in protecting the Great Smoky Mountains, cleaning up the Pigeon River, reducing pollution from coal-fired power plants, and preventing degradation of high quality streams and the globally significant Duck River Watershed. We have twice been awarded the Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Award.
