Programs


The Georgia Conservancy works to protect Georgia's natural resources for present and future generations by advocating sound environmental policies, advancing sustainable growth practices and facilitating common-ground solutions to environmental challenges. This is our Georgia.

Our major program areas are:

Advocacy
Whether it is lobbying legislators, meeting with local leaders or sitting at the table with state officials, we're there to advocate for Georgia's natural resources. We're at the state Capitol every day of each Legislative session promoting our conservation-minded agenda. Learn more>>


Land Conservation
We're dedicated to increasing the amount of land that is protected from development. It's a critical task, given that 92 percent of Georgia land is in private hands. Conserving land helps protect our state's threatened and endangered species and ensures that future generations have undisturbed open spaces to enjoy. Learn more>>


Sustainable Growth
Protecting Georgia's natural resources requires that built spaces - our cities, towns and neighborhoods - grow and develop in a more sustainable fashion. We help neighborhoods and local governments develop plans for future growth, and we host seminars to teach planning professionals, government officials and neighborhood residents the importance of sustainable growth. Learn more>>


Coastal Georgia
Georgia's coast stretches for nearly 100 miles and features some of the nation's most pristine beaches. Protecting our coast has been a priority of the Georgia Conservancy for more than 40 years. We have a satellite office in historic downtown Savannah and are working on a range of projects to protect this precious natural resource. Learn more>>


Stewardship Trips
The Georgia Conservancy offers exciting and affordable stewardship and adventure trips to the most spectacular parts of our state - from Cloudland Canyon in the north Georgia mountains to Cumberland Island on the coast. Learn more>>
