Meeman-Shelby Forest 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.

  • Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park protects the campground landscape from erosion and human impact through 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.
