"Tennessee…It Just Comes Natural" was a themed program by Bill Jenkins, a candidate for the Board of the Tennessee Valley Authority, to promote tourism by leveraging state recreational centers in 1972. The program included petitioning Congress to designate land as wilderness areas to support the theme of a natural Tennessee.
