OUR STORY

The mission of the Tennessee River Basin Network is to INSPIRE and EMPOWER the PEOPLE of the Tennessee River Basin to effectively STEWARD the region's AQUATIC BIODIVERSITY.

The Tennessee River Basin Network (hereafter, Network) is a partnership of states, cities, counties, tribal and federal agencies, academic organizations, private industry and other non-governmental organizations. The Network was formed in 2014 in response to the desire to unite diverse stakeholders in a joint effort in landscape conservation to protect one of the most diverse areas for aquatic species in North America. We implement our mission by connecting people, engaging our partnership on basin-wide shared priorities, and supporting our partners' efforts to effectively steward aquatic biodiversity.

A diverse network spurs innovation and results.

SUPPORT OUR PARTNERS' EFFORTS TO STEWARD AQUATIC BIODIVERSITY

Network partners can look to us for aid in their day to day efforts related to conservation of aquatic biodiversity. This aid might come is the form of supporting a partner's effort to secure funding, or the development and circulation of needed resources and tools. We are here to help.
