Sponsor an Event
In addition to our many stewardship trips, the Georgia Conservancy hosts special events throughout the year to celebrate Georgia's land and water, honor champions of Georgia's natural resources, and to say thank you to our members and supporters.
We can't do this without the support from corporations and individuals, like you! Every year, dozens of sponsors help make to these events a reality.
Below are the Georgia Conservancy's annual events:
The Oyster Roast
Held every spring in Savannah, the Oyster Roast celebrates Georgia's coast and the decades of work that the Georgia Conservancy and our supporters have dedicated to protecting these fragile and ecologically-diverse 100 miles of coastline.
Generation Green's annual summer soiree, VERDE!, honors emerging environmental leaders in metro Atlanta with the Longleaf Award.
