Tennessee is trying to join North Carolina in Virginia as the third state in the region to offer a license plate that benefits the Appalachian Trail. Funds from the cost of the plate would be given directly to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC), which would use the money to maintain, manage, and protect the 280 miles of the trail in Tennessee. The ATC needs to submit 1,000 paid applications to the state legislature by this June. North carolina has raised $250,000 for the trail with sales from the plate. Tennessee residents can sign up here.
