Dunbar Cave State Park


Dunbar Cave 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.

  • Dunbar Cave State Park protects their ecosystem through erosion control and trail surface improvements including manmade walkways and bridges in low areas.
  • Park staff enhance wildlife habitat with controlled burns, native grasses and vegetation, and volunteer trash pickup events. 
  • The park has energy efficient lighting in the visitor’s center.
  • Strategically placed trash and recycling dumpsters have been installed.
