How we leverage state and federal funds

VirginFallsTennessee has been very successful leveraging limited conservation funds in the past

A recent example:  When 1,575 acres were purchased to conserve the world-class wonder that is Virgin Falls State Natural Area, only $300,000 came from our State’s Land Acquisition Funds. 

State funding leveraged $1.5 million from Federal Endangered Species Funding and $800,000 from private contributions.

Virgin Falls, on the Cumberland Plateau, comes out of a cave, drops 110’ and disappears into a cave, with no upstream or downstream.
