TVA manages more than 30 public trails (more than 180 miles) along the Tennessee River and its tributaries and on reservoir lands. You can help us by protecting and monitoring the trails to instill a legacy of conservation.
The Adopt a Spot program will allow adopters to assist Natural Resources staff by providing information on trails or backcountry informal recreation site conditions. You'll need to visit your spot four times a year, and submit a report after each trip.
TVA’s Thousand Eyes Archaeological Site Stewardship Program is an outreach program that trains volunteers to help federal and state agencies with monitoring and protecting archaeological sites in the Tennessee Valley.
TVA believes in the value of Powerful Partnerships. By partnering with non-profits, schools, and local governments, we can multiply our stewardship efforts across our seven-state service area. Find out about opportunities for your organization.
