Conservation Organization of the Year Award

We want you to be among the first to learn that the Wolf River Conservancy has been named the Conservation Organization of the Year at the 53rd Annual Conservation Achievement Awards in Nashville on May 18th sponsored by the Tennessee Wildlife Federation. This is an important recognition for all of us – board members, donors, landowners, volunteers and staff.

For over a half-century, the Tennessee Wildlife Federation, one of the largest and oldest nonprofits dedicated to the conservation of Tennessee’s wildlife and natural resources, has recognized both individual and organizational leaders in conservation through its annual Conservation Achievement Awards. This month, the Wolf River Conservancy was honored to be the recipient of the 2018 Conservation Organization of the Year Award. Conservancy staff members Keith Cole, Ryan Hall and Bob Wenner accepted the award on behalf of our organization. Please visit this link for more information

Since 1985, the Wolf River Conservancy has protected over 16,000 acres within the Wolf River Watershed. By protecting these strategically important lands, we are safeguarding water, woods and wildlife in the Mid-South. Earlier this year, the Conservancy protected three critical properties in Fayette County, which spanned nearly two miles of river frontage on both sides of the Wolf River. 

The Wolf River Conservancy is proud of these achievements and the growth of our organization in its 33-year history. The Conservancy’s land conservation projects preserve critically important lands in the Wolf River Watershed, helping to protect our clean drinking water.  The award for the Conservation Organization of the Year from the Tennessee Wildlife Federation reflects our collective hard work, and these accomplishments would not have been possible without your financial support.

Thank you for your generosity through the years. There is still important work to do in pursuit of our mission to protect and enhance the Wolf River watershed as a sustainable natural resource. With your support we can continue our effort to Preserve the Wonder of the Wolf  now and for future generations.
