Sgt. Alvin C. York 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.

  • Sgt. Alvin C. York State Park has low-flow sinks in the visitor’s center.
  • They also have made significant progress with removal of invasive plants which makes the park more habitable for native species while creating more wildlife habitat.
