TWRA Region 2Region II is one of four regions within TWRA’s statewide organization. Wildlife officers reside in the 25 counties that comprise Region II, but the regional headquarters is located in the Ellington Agricultural Center in south Davidson County. Wildlife managers, biologists, dispatchers, and secretaries work in the office and routinely coordinate with Middle Tennessee wildlife officers and field staff of wildlife management areas, fish crews, TWRA lakes, hatcheries, and shooting ranges.

In addition, the Region II headquarters also includes TWRA’s sales office where hunters, anglers, and boaters can stop by during weekday business hours and purchase hunting/fishing licenses, permits, or boat registrations. Our office is open 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
