Advocacy


The Georgia Conservancy has a long history of advocating for the protection and conservation of Georgia's natural resources at the local, state and federal levels.

Our advocacy team has decades of experience in state politics and is dedicated to using the political process to help protect our state's precious natural resources. We're at the state capitol every day of the legislative session pushing for conservation-minded bills and fighting against legislation that would roll back advancements we've already made.

The Georgia Conservancy’s advocacy work doesn’t stop at the capitol steps. We’re working year-round on key issues such as transportation, energy, water resources, land conservation and development to make Georgia a place where people and the environment thrive.

There were wins and losses throughout 2016's exciting legislative session – a session that did not disappoint when it came to last-minute bills, late-night votes and back-and-forth amendments. Pipelines, transit expansion and conservation tax credits were all debated. Click here to read our recap of the 2016 Legislative Session
