Generation Green

Georgia's newest generation of conservation leaders

Founded in 1994, Generation Green is an elected board of directors committed to supporting the Georgia Conservancy and its mission and programs. Generation Green empowers our communities to protect and enjoy Georgia’s outdoors through adventure trips, service projects and social and educational events.

In addition to supporting the Georgia Conservancy, Generation Green board members receive one-of-a-kind exposure to our organization's work to protect and conserve Georgia's natural resources - providing them with the knowledge, skills and relationships to advance their growing careers along a path of conservation and sustainability.
