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.

  • Two electric vehicle charging stations have been installed at the Nature Center.
  • Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park protects the campground landscape from erosion and human impact through the use of tent pads. Tent pads are man-made surfaces that protect the ground from damage caused by repeatedly setting up a tent in the same spot.
