Seminar: Tony Lance, Certify Your Yard

September 19, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Tony Lance previously worked as a naturalist for the Nashville Park system, then joined the Tennessee Wildlife Federation in 2011. A longtime birder and beekeeper, Tony is most at home being outdoors hiking and backpacking. In 1999, he checked a major goal off his bucket list by completing a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. Tony has a bachelor’s degree in communications from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

The Tennessee Wildlife Federation, one of the largest and oldest nonprofits dedicated to conserving the state’s wildlife and natural resources, partnered with the National Wildlife Federation to help Tennesseans create wildlife sanctuaries in their own yards, big and small. “Ninety percent of Tennessee’s land is privately owned, which means providing for our state’s diverse wildlife is largely up to us as individuals. By doing our part, we help keep Tennessee the most biologically diverse inland state in the country,” said Tony Lance, the Federation’s in-house certified wildlife habitat expert.
