For 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.
The Council's authority comes from those they represent -- the citizens of this state. Whether in your community or in the State capitol, the Council speaks for thousands of Tennesseans all across the state. Your membership ensures that those voices are heard and respected every day in public hearings, during legislative debates, and by policy makers. For more info visit tectn.org.
