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

Partner Spotlight

Danny Sells
We typically use this portion of the Newsletter to spotlight a partner organization, but we wanted to take the opportunity to highlight an individual Network member who retired the end of 2019 and has been an integral part of our Network's leadership over the past few years. Danny Sells recently retired from acting as the Executive Director for the Tennessee Association of Conservation Districts.  He also served the past year and a half on our Network's Steering Committee. Prior to working with the Tennessee Association of
Conservation Districts, Sells spent close to a decade in leadership roles for the Natural Resource Conservation Service. He also served as a field representative adviser to U.S. Senator Al Gore regarding agriculture and conservation. He recently received the Lifetime Achievement award from the TN Association of Conservation Districts for his lifelong dedication and voice for agriculture and conservation. Thanks, Danny, for your dedication over the years and your commitment to our Network!
