Red Clay State Historic Park

Red Clay 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.

  • Red Clay State Park has recently upgraded all of the visitor center’s lighting to energy efficient LED and they have already seen a huge difference in electricity consumption.
  • The HVAC system has also been upgraded to a more energy efficient model.
  • They contribute to ecosystem health with planted butterfly gardens and native plants.
