Support You Local Environmental Groups.
In Memphis, several groups are trying to raise awareness of environmental problems in the area. Involving yourself with these groups will help them achieve their goals. Such groups include:
The Wolf River Conservancy
Keith Kirkland is Director of Membership. The WRC provides saplings each year for the Memphis community to plant. For its members, it also offers guided canoe trips seasonally. The goal of the WRC is to protect the Wolf River and its wetlands. Visit wolfriver.org
Shelby Farms Park Conservancy
Margaret Cross is the Director of Membership. The Shelby Farms Park Conservancy aims to protect the park's current land and increase services within the park. Currently hiking, paddle boating, disc golf, and canoeing are options at the park. Visit http://www.shelbyfarmspark.org/sfpc/
