| Clean and sustainable water resources are vital components of a good quality of life in Tennessee communities. UT Extension recognizes the constant need for the latest solutions to empower citizens to practice stewardship. Our Watershed Management program provides needed information to those working to protect our natural water resources and prevent nonpoint source pollution.

"The last word in ignorance is the man who says of an animal or plant, "What good is it?" If the land mechanism as a whole is good, then every part is good, whether we understand it or not. If the biota, in the course of aeons, has built something we like but do not understand, then who but a fool would discard seemingly useless parts? To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering."
- Aldo Leopold (Round River: From the Journals of Aldo Leopold)
