Network News

May 2019

A lot of great things are happening within the Basin. We hope many of you were able to attend a Hidden Rivers film screening event and witness the excitement from event attendees. Freshwaters Illustrated will be at our Annual Meeting in August to share about the success of their soft roll out of Hidden Rivers and brainstorm with us about what is next for the film. Looks like we have grown the population of freshwater junkies in our region! Many thanks to our partners who supported the making of this film.

The mission of the Tennessee River Basin Network is to inspire and empower people of the Tennessee River Basin to effectively steward the region's aquatic biodiversity.

Your Planning Committee has been working hard to develop a FREE fun and value-added TRBN Annual Meeting. We are very excited about our venue this year, Lake Guntersville State Park, as it is a beautiful setting to bring everyone together to share, learn, and identify collective action regarding our basin's unparalleled aquatic life.
