Tennessee Waterfowl, Wildlife And Waters At Risk
New report shows more than half of state’s streams and wetlands endangered.
Tennessee –-(AmmoLand.com)- Please join the leaders in Tennessee waterfowl, wildlife and fish habitat conservation to discuss a new report that shows serious threats to Tennessee’s wetlands and streams and the wildlife, fish, and waterfowl that inhabit them.
This report provides an overview of the waters at risk in Tennessee and documents cases in Tennessee where important waterways have lost basic federal pollution protections because of the confused state of the law.
Included among these waters are wetlands associated with a vital tributary to the Tennessee River, a wetland impacting Tennessee’s treasured Reelfoot National Wildlife Refuge, and wetlands under siege from development.
It is almost certain that these waters would have been protected prior to the 2001 and 2006 Supreme Court decisions that weakened the Clean Water Act.
Scheduled speakers are:
- Jim Murphy, National Wildlife Federation (moderator)
- Mike Butler, Tennessee Wildlife Federation
- George Lane, Tennessee Trout Unlimited Council
- John McFadden, report author
- Scott Yaich, Ducks Unlimited
