In 1994, citizens interested in the Conasauga River watershed were brought together by the Limestone Valley Resource Conservation and Development Council to begin a close and coordinated look at their watershed. Local stakeholders joined together to create a community based partnership, the Conasauga River Alliance. The Nature Conservancy played a vital role in the partnership by providing staff and organizational support to the Alliance. The Alliance has been active in both Tennessee and Georgia, where it promotes a coordinated effort between private citizens and government agencies to maintain and improve the quality of the Conasauga River watershed while respecting landowner rights.
