Volunteering at TVA

Want to make a difference in the Tennessee Valley Region?

Volunteer at TVA and be part of our mission of service to protect our natural resources. With 293,000 acres and 11,000 miles of shoreline entrusted to us, there are many ways to get involved. Learn how you can help us make the Valley a great place to live, work and play.

Get Involved

Adopt a TVA Trail

TVA manages more than 30 public trails (more than 180 miles) along the Tennessee River and its tributaries and on reservoir lands. You can help us by protecting and monitoring the trails to instill a legacy of conservation.

Adopt a Spot

The Adopt a Spot program will allow adopters to assist Natural Resources staff by providing information on trails or backcountry informal recreation site conditions. You’ll need to visit your spot four times a year, and submit a report after each trip.

Thousand Eyes Archaeological Site Stewardship Program

TVA’s Thousand Eyes Archaeological Site Stewardship Program is an outreach program that trains volunteers to help federal and state agencies with monitoring and protecting archaeological sites in the Tennessee Valley.
