Mousetail Landing Go Green
Mousetail Landing State Park has completed the Gold Recognition Level of the TN State Parks Go Green With Us Initiative and Guidelines. The guidelines include multiple areas of environmental sustainability, including education and outreach, water conservation, energy efficiency, waste and recycling, and much more. Congrats to this park for going above and beyond to be excellent stewards of our natural resources!
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.
- Mousetail Landing State Park’s visitor’s center recently upgraded all lighting to LED and has upgraded to a 16 SEER HVAC system.
- The park participates in TVA’s Green Power Switch program.
- The use of tent pads in the campground protects and enhances the ecosystem by decreasing negative impact from repeatedly setting up a tent in the same place.
