Bridgestone/Firestone Conservation Area  


  April 26, 2000

On Thursday, April 14th, Tennessee Governor Don Sundquist and Bridgestone/Firestone Inc. announced that Bridgestone/Firestone will donate 6,000 acres of its land in Scott's Gulf to the State of Tennessee, adding to their previously donated 4,000 acres.  This river gorge property, which will be protected as the Bridgestone/Firestone Conservation Area, has scenic bluffs and cliffs, waterfalls, caves, and more than 20 miles of challenging whitewater on Bee Creek and the Caney Fork River.  The Caney Fork River gorge has been called the Grand Canyon of the Cumberlands.
