Restore degraded natural areas to a more pristine state by removing exotic invasive plants and animals, revegetating with locally-native (indigenous) plant species, and mitigating issues caused by runoff and pollution.
Build community partnerships and outfit Murfreesboro’s residents with knowledge and tools to practice environmental conservation at home and in the community.
Natural resource management is the informed stewardship of natural spaces and systems, including their component parts, such as soil, water, vegetation, and wildlife. From pollinator plots at Old Fort Park to water quality improvement in our streams and rivers, and from biological surveys to trail maintenance, our team is engaged in monitoring and improving conditions in Murfreesboro's natural areas.
Learn about our native plant nursery and revegetation projects, where to find information on native species for our area, how you can get involved with native plant conservation, and how you can get native plants for your home!
Civic groups, individuals, non-profits, and other branches of Murfreesboro City government are working - both independently and collaboratively - to care for the city's natural setting and systems.
