Georgia: Better Explored by FireLight
We reckon this is the BIGGEST event that the Georgia Conservancy has ever hosted - well, this and the 1500 people that we shuttled down the Chattahoochee in Columbus during The Grand in August.
More than 1,000 friends and new faces joined us on Saturday, November 21 for FIRELIGHT at Atlanta's SweetWater Brewing Company! It was a SOLD OUT event and we nearly doubled our projected fundraising goal for the evening. Thank you!

A celebration of the Georgia Conservancy's Stewardship Trips Program, Firelight brought together Georgia Conservancy members and trip alumni, as well as introduced new folks to the work that we are doing across the state to share Georgia's most precious natural places and advocate for their stewardship and protection.
The evening was filled with campfires, s'mores, great local music from Kristina Murray, Sailing To Denver and members from All The Locals! We, of course, enjoyed a host of tasty beverages from our friends at SweetWater!
A huge thank you to BlackCatTips - The Art of Kyle Brooks for really setting the look and feel of this year's Firelight. Kyle's inspired artwork and poetry will be stay with us during our Stewardship Trips in 2016 and beyond!
