Your Network News - Cast your vote on TRBN priorities

The TRBN Steering Committee had a productive meeting in Cleveland, TN last week. We welcomed some new faces to this meeting and are very excited about the areas of expertise these members will bring to our Network's leadership. Meeting minutes will be uploaded to our Network website soon.

Please take the time to help the Network identify shared priorities for 2020 by completing the brief survey HERE and also linked below. Your voice is an integral part to moving our Network forward.  AKA Aquatic Biodiversity's Super Tuesday!

We also would like to welcome the Boone Watershed Partnership as a new partner to the Network. Thanks for joing us! If you are interested in becoming a partner you can submit your inquiry HERE.

The Mission of the Tennessee River Basin Network is to inspire and empower the people of the Tennessee River Basin to effectively steward the region's aquatic biodiversity.
