Ensuring A Culture of Conservation For Georgia
Today and Tomorrow

In celebration of our fifty years protecting and conserving Georgia’s land and water, The Georgia Conservancy hopes you will join us in building a strong foundation for the future by becoming a founding member of The 1967 Society.

Since 1967, the support of committed members of the Georgia Conservancy has led to a better Georgia. Today, we can celebrate conservation successes in the founding of Sweetwater Creek and Panola Mountain State Parks, the federal-designation of the Okefenokee and Cohutta Wilderness Areas, and the establishment of Cumberland Island National Seashore, to name a few. Strong support has buttressed our work to protect, conserve and restore thousands of acres of forests, fields and wetlands – both public and private. Additionally, we have been able to create more than 30 sustainable growth plans for communities large and small across the state, and have successfully lobbied for no rollbacks in laws that protect our precious natural resources. Today, we lead thousands of conservationists and advocates into Georgia’s outdoors through stewardship and adventure opportunities.  Learn more about the Georgia Conservancy's fifty years of work.

Through the 1967 Society, you will strengthen the Georgia Conservancy’s ability to tackle the conservation challenges that face our future and advance our vision of a Georgia’s culture of conservation. Your support will bring growth to our organization and pave the way for future generations. With your help, the Georgia Conservancy will make Georgia a place where future generations and the environment can thrive, and we want to make sure that you are properly celebrated for your commitment.
