200 ACRES PROTECTED: Last week, we finalized a conservation easement that will protect 200 acres of rolling land in southern Middle Tennessee. Nestled into the southwestern corner of Marshall County, this land possesses pastoral beauty that is often reserved for paintings and poetry. But its significance spans far beyond its visual charm. With dozens of acres of woodlands, several productive hay fields, and thousands of feet of frontage along Robertson Fork, the property is an environmental, agricultural, and recreational gem. We’re thankful that it is now protected. #landtrusttn #tennessee #conservation #greenpastures

It’s been an absolute thrill partnering with @salvarezphoto this week to photograph people and places that make Tennessee special. Thank you, Stephen! #Repost @salvarezphoto ・・・ It's not often that I get to make photos in my home state! But this week I'm shooting for The Land Trust for Tennessee. They are a 20 year old non profit that have steadily worked toward conserving land in our rapidly growing state. It's a privilege to see some of the thousands of acres that @landtrusttn has helped preserve. #tennessee #landtrust

LAND PROTECTED in Knox County: We worked with Bob and Mary Potts to permanently protect their 27 acres of rolling pasture and forested hills in Knoxville last week. 🌳 Their land sits on the banks of the scenic Clinch River, a favorite destination for paddlers, fisherman, and boaters. 🌳 They purchased their first acre of this land in 1973, buying additional acres as they could. When they first moved out to this once-rural northwest corner of Knoxville, friends thought they were ‘crazy’. 🌳 Today, this area is experiencing the fastest growth in Knox County, with similar acres of trees and rolling hills developing seemingly overnight. We’re thrilled to help the Potts family conserve this beautiful land forever! 🌳 Support our land conservation work with a gift by Dec 31 and it will be matched 100% up to $20,000 – thanks to one of our generous donors.

Yesterday, The Land Trust and @nashvilletree welcomed dozens of community members to Glen Leven Farm for a colorful fall hike. 🍁 Throughout the afternoon, families and individuals enjoyed an up-close look at Glen Leven Farm’s tranquil arboretum, home to more than 26 species of trees and shrubs, and vibrant changing leaves. 🍂 Before the walk began, we were honored to join two United States Veterans in planting the first-ever Black gum tree at Glen Leven Farm in honor of Veterans Day. 🍂🍁🍂

This morning we welcomed more than 40 pre-k students and teachers from the Nashville area for a fun fall field trip at Glen Leven Farm! Thanks to the leadership of our great volunteers, students learned about the changing leaves and trees, vegetables growing in our garden, and even met our miniature donkeys, Will and Dave! We hope you, too, enjoy the beautiful fall leaves this weekend. You can learn more about our field trip program at the link in our profile. 🍁🍂🍃

Our team had an inspiring weekend at @ltalliance #rally2018, The National Land Conservation Conference. Over the course of the conference we shared meaningful conversations with land trust alliance members from across the country ranging from stewardship to standards and practices to protecting land in perpetuity. And Emily Parish, our Vice President of Conservation, presented on strategic conservation planning and risk management to our colleagues. Thank you, Land Trust Alliance, for your hard work to bring together so many passionate land conservation groups and professionals for this educational experience.

685 ACRES PROTECTED IN WEST TN: At the end of July, we finalized a conservation agreement that protects 685 acres of gently rolling forest and farmland in West Tennessee. 🌳 Protecting this property – which boasts over 300 hundred acres of prime agricultural soils, a winding creek, and significant habitat for Tennessee wildlife – is a big win for land conservation in Fayette County. 🌳 We’re grateful to be working with current and future landowners to protect this beautiful, productive piece of land.
