Buy Color Topo Maps for Tennessee WMA's

Sunday, June 15, 2003

Tennessee hunters are now able to purchase color maps of some of the most popular wildlife management areas in the state, according to David Duval, Executive Director of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation.

The maps have been produced by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s (TWRA) Geographic Information Systems Division. Maps vary in size from 8.5" X 11" to 22" X 34" depending on the size of the WMA. The cost ranges from $1.25 to $6.

“The people in TWRA's Geographic Information Systems Division have done an outstanding job creating color maps that I expect will be very popular once our hunters learn about them," said Duval. "The Foundation is going to be handling the sale of the maps for TWRA."

Maps may be purchased in person at TWRA regional offices or ordered from the Foundation. Order forms can be obtained by calling the Foundation at (615) 831-3480 or by visiting the Foundation’s website.

Checks or money orders must be sent to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation (or TWRF) at P.O. Box 110031, Nashville, TN 37222.

Maps are currently available for: A.E.D.C., Bark Camp Barren, Bridgestone/Firestone, Buffalo Springs, Catoosa, Cheatham, Chuck Swan, Cove Creek, Cumberland Springs, Duck River, Ernest Rice, Sr., Fall Creek Falls, Foothills, Haynes Bottom, Kyker Bottoms, Laurel Hill, Moss Island, Natchez Trace, Normandy, Obion River & Gooch, Prentice Cooper, Reelfoot, Royal Blue, Tellico Lake, Tigrett, Williamsport, and Wolf River.
