Tennessee RC & D Council Home
The Tennessee Association of Resource Conservation and Development Councils (TN RC&D Council) is composed of 12 Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Councils in different regions of Tennessee. RC&D Councils provide a unique process for Tennessee to develop its economic, natural, and social resources in ways that improve the economy, environment, and quality of life. Most of the counties in Tennessee are represented by an RC & D Council. Take a moment to review our website to see the many things the TN RC & D Council and its member RC&D Councils are doing across our great state.
The 2016 Tennessee RC & D Annual Meeting will be held Thursday, August 11, 2016, in Greeneville, TN at the General Morgan Inn. The meeting is sponsored by the Appalachian RC & D Council and will be held in conjunction with the National Quilt Trail Gathering. Click here to see a flyer with more information.
NEVER OVERLOOK THE OBVIOUS
After many years of facing life's challenges, we have an intuitive instinct to apply what some consider the first rule of a scientific investigation - NEVER OVERLOOK THE OBVIOUS!
When this rule is applied in a calm, quiet environment, a person's creative instincts will often surface.
But how would you describe this natural aptitude to your children, grandchildren, friends or even fellow council members?
Two (2) Tennessee Resource Conservation and Development Creativity Grant in the amount of $2.500.00 will be awarded to the winning councils judged to have proposed the most creative project which will benefit their community.
