Center for Sustainable Stewardship



The Center for Sustainable Stewardship offers authentic natural experiences in a unique watershed, and offers education and fellowship for those learning, practicing, and teaching the preservation of our natural heritage. We understand that a strengthened connection with nature increases wellness of mind and body, even as it creates community. By protecting the land we create a legacy for future generations. Visitors are invited to learn from our local community so that they may improve the sustainability of their own communities.

We are a member-supported 501(c)3 nonprofit nestled within the valley created by Big East Fork Creek, a tributary of the South Harpeth River. The 713-acre campus of Center for Sustainable Stewardship is located in a conservation easement which, with your help, we seek to enlarge and build structures for meeting and education. CSS operates a small farm on several acres shared with our menagerie of friendly animals, green houses and a community garden. The CSS Adventure Center lends bicycles and watercraft to its members and supporters.

The Center for Sustainable Stewardship (CSS) plans to grow our membership and to increase awareness for watershed protection. CSS provides nature hikes, touring bicycles, educational experiences, farming opportunities, and access to a beautiful watershed just minutes from Franklin and Nashville, Tennessee.
