Chickasaw Go Green
The mission of the Tennessee State Parks Go Green With Us program is to preserve and protect our state parks through sustainable park operations, resource conservation, and recycling. Program components cover a diverse array of initiatives, including energy and water conservation through equipment and operations upgrades, recycling programs, projects to enhance ecosystem health, and erosion control, among many others.
- Chickasaw State Park protects their landscape through preventing erosion in the campground with tent pads which are man-made surfaces that protect the ground from damage caused by repeatedly setting up a tent in the same spot.
- The park makes on-going drainage improvements in the campground, which minimizes damage caused by heavy rains.
- The park has made several water heating upgrades that have decreased energy consumption and they are part of the TVA’s Green Power Switch.
- The park installed strategically placed trash and recycling dumpsters, removing all individual trash cans and placing signs informing visitors of these locations. Fewer trash cans result in a decrease in the number of trashcan liners required. This means less waste and a decrease in associated cost.
