CONSERVATIONIST & ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCATE
"NATURE AND WISDOM ALWAYS SAY THE SAME"
A FORCE FOR NATURE.
Welcome to MackPrichard.org, a home for some of the amazing collections of photos, videos and writings of Tennessee State Naturalist-emeritus Mack S. Prichard, a Memphis native who called the entire State of Tennessee his home (at least, the natural parts!).
Here, with Mack's blessing, the Friends of South Cumberland State Park, curators of this site, have scanned, archived and posted some of the thousands of slides, dozens of presentations and countless pages of Mack's writings and notes, recounting his more than six decades of service to the State of Tennessee, to Nature, and to like-minded environmentalists and conservationists across the planet.
Special thanks to the Tennessee Federation of Garden Clubs for its generous support of the Friends' work on the Mack Prichard Legacy Project.

A youthful Mack in action -- a self-portrait, taken with the timer on his camera. Said Mack, "I had to run like the devil to get into that shot, and at the moment the shutter clicked, I had no idea if I was even in the frame of the picture, or more importantly, whether I would complete that jump in one piece!" Happily, he made it -- and got a great photo, too!
