Association of Georgia Land Trusts
A Georgia Conservancy-convened coalition to provide news, share conservation best practices, and advocate for the protection of valuable environmental lands across the state of Georgia.
When it comes to land conservation in the state of Georgia, there is strength in numbers. Conserving lands rich with environmental resources—including wildlife, wetlands, forest, agricultural, and scenic amenities—requires a coordinated effort across nonprofits, state agencies, and landowners.
The Georgia Conservancy is pleased to announce a new initiative that takes this coordinated approach: Association of Georgia Land Trusts. This new coalition brings together over 20 organizations across the state to share news and best practices, provide technical assistance and advice to clients and partners, and advocate for the protection of valuable environmental lands. Association of Georgia Land Trusts is modeled after similar initiatives in other states, including Florida and North Carolina, which have seen significant success among land conservation projects in those areas. Thanks to funding provided by Trailsend Foundation and other partners, it also builds upon previous work from past Georgia Conservancy Coastal Director Hans Neuhauser, a revered figure in the realm of Georgia land conservation efforts, aimed at building community among local land trusts.
The Association of Georgia Land Trusts is poised to make a significant impact on the conservation of valuable lands across the state. If you are interested in learning more about AGLT and signing up for the email newsletter, visit AGLT’s Facebook page or sign-up for the AGLT eNewsletter.
