Membership


Jump to membership level: Cambium Generation Green General

First and foremost, a membership in the Georgia Conservancy supports our organization financially. Our members make possible our work protecting Georgia's natural resources.

Your membership means more support for clean air and water, land conservation and coastal protection. It also lends strength and credibility when we work to influence public policy and decisions regarding economic and sustainable growth issues.

For example, we successfully advocated for the 2010 Water Stewardship Act, which is now the nation’s strongest water conservation law. We also launched a land conservation initiative, which in three short years has helped to permanently protect over 14,000 acres of biologically diverse land and water resources in Georgia. This simply wouldn't have been possible without our members’ support.

All members of the Georgia Conservancy have the opportunity to advocate with us on important environmental issues, stay up-to-date on the most pressing environmental stories of the day, and join us on special outdoor adventure trips, educational opportunities and service projects across the state.

The Georgia Conservancy’s Land Stewards membership level is designed to recognize those individuals who make possible the Conservancy’s unique approach to helping landowners protect their land.  Many of the individuals that have chosen to become Land Stewards Members are the very landowners that we have assisted in achieving their personal conservation goals. Land Stewards Council Members receive the entire suite of Cambium member benefits listed above in addition to these unique benefits:

  • Our land conservation specialist will prioritize the evaluation of your land and make appropriate recommendations through in-person meetings with the landowner and family and remain “on-call” to assist with any questions or concerns moving forward even after the deal closes.
  • Full access to the Conservancy’s expertise in evaluating lands for Federal Farm Bill program applications.
  • Assignment of a personal consultant to assist you in the evaluation and execution of appropriate planning
