Tennessee to Expand Wildlife Area by 1,000 Acres

Tennessee’s Bear Hollow Mountain Wildlife Management Area officially just got bigger by 1,000 acres.

The area is north of the Alabama border and an hour west of Chattanooga.

The Associated Press reported that the new land connects the divided land. Thanks to the Conservation Fund’s land purchase in March 2021, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency found time and money for the land purchase.

The agency manages 125 wildlife management areas throughout the state.

According to The Chattanoogan, The Conservation Fund worked in partnership with the Open Space Institute (OSI), The Nature Conservancy in Tennessee (TNC), and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) to close the deal. The Nature Conservancy of Tennessee helped out with some donations. They came from the Riverview Foundation, the WestRock Foundation, and a private estate gift.
