TCWP (Tennessee Citizens for Wilderness Planning) is dedicated to achieving and perpetuating protection of natural lands and waters by means of public ownership, legislation, or cooperation of the private sector. While our first focus is on the Cumberland and Appalachian regions of East Tennessee, our efforts may extend to the rest of the state and the nation. TCWP's strength lies in researching information pertinent to an issue, informing and educating our membership and the public, interacting with groups having similar objectives, and working through the legislative, administrative, and judicial branches of government on the federal, state, and local level.
Don't be concerned that you'll be at an event by yourself just because there are few meet-up reservations. TCWP has over 200 members across middle and east Tennessee, many of whom rely on our excellent newsletter (published 6 times a year) rather than this site for information on frequent lectures, field trips, work days, and other outdoor activities.
