About Us Events & Activities Conservation Education Greenway Get Involved


Dear Wolf River Conservancy friends,

The Wolf River Conservancy founding board members had a vision to build the Wolf River Greenway trail to support our overall land conservation mission. As we continue construction of the Greenway trail - which upon completion will be a 25+ mile trail connecting Downtown Memphis to Germantown and beyond - we are also providing access to and awareness of the Wolf River, including new educational and recreational opportunities.

The Wolf River Greenway trail also creates awareness of our organization and its need for continued support, leading to vital connections with members of our community.  Scott and Kay Dawson were first introduced to the Wolf River Conservancy through their active use of the Wolf River Greenway trail.

Today, we are very pleased to announce that Scott and Kay Dawson are providing a $100,000 matching grant to support the Wolf River Conservancy.

This very generous gift provides a $1 for $1 match for any unrestricted financial gift beginning now through December 31, 2018.

Scott and Kay have been supportive of many other community organizations.  The Wolf River Conservancy is gratified to have earned their financial support!

Please share our appreciation for the Dawson's generosity and your support for the Wolf River Conservancy by donating online at this link.

Thank you to the Dawsons and to all of our supporters!

Keith Cole
Executive Director
