Since 1992, the Tennessee Aquarium has helped the Chattanoonga community understand and value the incredible animals that live in our backyard. The Aquarium works to inspire wonder, appreciation and protection of water and all life that it sustains has cultivated a community-wide consciousness of environmental stewardship, while strengthening the Chattanooga community as an educational, environmental and economic driver of positive change. Every year the award-winning education staff reaches nearly 200,000 individuals with inspiring programs delivered both on the Aquarium campus and throughout the tri-state area.
The Tennessee Environmental Education Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting environmental education programs throughout Tennessee. TEEA also works to promote research, development and evaluation of environmental education materials, programs and activities.
