Dear Friend of the Foothills,
Foothills Land Conservancy has preserved over 26,000 acres in 13 counties across the region. This month, Foothills is poised to almost double the number of Tennessee counties where we have land protection partnerships. This expansion could bring the total to over 20 counties and increase our total preserved acreage to 30,000+, covering more acreage in one year than any other in Foothills’ history!
Join FLC in the protection and preservation of East Tennessee’s cherished mountains, working farms and rural landscapes. Please consider renewing and even increasing your support as a Friend of the Foothills today - assisting us with the continued expansion of preserved lands throughout our region.
An old Davy Crockett ballad called Tennessee ‘the greenest state in the land of the Free’. And that it may be. Tennessee is known for its wild places and wild things, with incredible bio-diversity - including thousands of wildlife and native plant species - giving us the number one ranking for an inland state with the most diverse ecosystem.
The word is spreading about East Tennessee’s beauty and live-ability as more and more folks move here to work or retire. One of the results is that our green, rural landscape is melting away like snow on a warming winter day.
Pledge today – help us widen our reach in preserving the farms, open lands, woodlands, watersheds, wildlife habitats and ridge tops all of us call home. Friends of the Foothills members receive all event invitations and announcements as well as the satisfaction of knowing their contributions go towards preserving, protecting and enhancing the East Tennessee landscape.
Thank you for being a valued Friend of the Foothills!
