Natural Resource Management

Natural Resource Management is the active management of major natural resources, such as land, water, forests,  wild flora and fauna. The sustainable management of these resources strives to: 

  • promote diversity
  • restore native systems
  • preserve what is whole
  • conserve what is in use
  • maintain the ecosystem services that provide better quality to all of life

The Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Natural Resource Division works on many projects that meet these needs.  Within these pages, you will find information on the natural systems that exist in and surrounding Murfreesboro, details on projects in progress and planned for the future, and information on the many natural areas on City property that are open to the public to visit responsibly.
