John Tully Wildlife Management Area
Replanting Our Nation’s Forests
Forest OverviewThe John Tully Wildlife Management Area is a 15,500-acre haven for wildlife and is filled with a diverse population of bottomland hardwoods and swamp habitats. The land itself is in a critical location, Fort Pillow State Historic Park is adjacent to the site and the Mississippi River banks forms the western border of the ecosystem.
John Tully Wildlife Management Area Needs Our HelpDeforestation and drainage for agricultural production have resulted in massive losses of critical wildlife and fish habitat on bottomland sites across West Tennessee. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has made this land a priority. With help from Arbor Day Foundation members and partners, we can help our partner’s plant high-quality oak trees from local seed sources to decrease soil erosion, enhance soil quality, improve water quality, improve air quality, and restore critical wildlife habitat.
