Natural Treasures

 
 

The abundance of natural beauty and biodiversity in the greater Chattanooga region is unparalleled.

The natural environment also sustains the region's people with wholesome food, renewable forests, clean air, fresh water and world-renowned outdoor recreation. Strengthening these natural treasures will strengthen the economic vitality and character of the region, and improve the health of the people and the place that they call home.

As our region experiences a greater influx of people and the resulting footprints of growth and development, Thrive Regional Partnership seeks to expand outdoor recreation opportunities and espouse regional conservation benchmarks. Everyone must have access to the spectacular natural treasures in the region and develop the will to preserve them.
