Bridgestone donated an about 6,000 acre-piece of property to the The Nature Conservancy in Tennessee.

The land is in White County about 80 miles east of Nashville and will be called the Bridgestone Nature Reserve at Chestnut Mountain. 

It's the largest land donation in the history of the Nature Conservancy in Tennessee.

Experts say the land will protect and enhance habitats for some endangered plants and animals. It will also offset the carbon footprint of the company's new corporate headquarters in Downtown Nashville.
