In Tennessee, you don't have to go far to see rolling farmland, find a historic site or enjoy one of the countless trails and natural areas. In Chattanooga especially, there are plenty of reasons to get outside and explore. Within thirty minutes of downtown, you'll find more than 50 trailheads, making it one of the most hiker-friendly cities in the country.

No matter where you live or visit in the state, Tennessee has a lot to offer. It's a unique bounty that we can all enjoy -- but it requires vigilance and a continued investment if we want it to exist for future generations.

That's where The Land Trust for Tennessee comes in. From the Mississippi River to Lookout Mountain, The Land Trust works to conserve places across the state that we can't afford to lose.
