Conservation Education through a Cooperative Effort in Tennessee

A cooperative agreement among the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and 5 other organizations led to a unique conservation educational experience for visitors to the Unicoi County Heritage Museum (UCHM) in northeastern Tennessee. The adjacent grounds were designated a Wildlife Observation Area that provided an opportunity to view wildlife in natural situations. A quarter-mile nature trail and accompanying audiocassette guide were developed. A natural history exhibit featuring plants, animals, and geologic material was added to the museum. Local school groups and other citizens have taken advantage of this outdoor education experience through participation in Conservation Education Now for Tennessee Students (CENTS) and Project WILD activities.
