The Tennessee Wildlife Federation (TWF) was founded Feb. 12, 1946, as the Tennessee Conservation League during a meeting at Chattanooga's historic Read House Hotel. Fifty-three outdoor writers and conservationists from around the state gathered to build a new organization dedicated to the preservation of wildlife and habitat.
Our mission is to champion the conservation, sound management, and enjoyment of Tennessee's wildlife and natural resources for current and future generations through stewardship, advocacy, and education.

We invite you to friend us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, signup for our e-newsletter, and watch us on Youtube. Look for TWF soon on Pinterest and Instagram. A brand-new website is in the works, too! Thanks for stopping by and in your interest in Tennessee's great outdoors.
