    Blog

    March 17, 2020 | The first time I walked down the Natchez Trace, I was enchanted by the towering pine forests and palmetto sprinkled swampland.

    News

    November 1, 2019 | Our very own Brenna Kelly, Corps Director of Southeast Conservation Corps, is featured in the Get Out features of the Chattanooga Times Free Press. Read more below!

     

    Within the past three issues of Get Out, we have featured a different conservation group's newly hired executive director — and all have been women. That got us wondering, are women leading the local conservation scene? Based on our tally — yes.
