The Georgia Conservancy is a great non-profit group that has been protecting Georgias natural resources since 1967. They have a great staff that give exciting and affordable trips to some of the most spectaclar parts of the state. I am so glad that I can be apart of this group and their effort to protect our great state.

By far The Georgia Conservancy has been the best non profit association I have ever had the pleasure of donating too! Every trip I have been lucky enough to go on has been insightful with not only the beauty of the location, but the history and the preservation the conservancy is working towards to make it stay that way. The trips are so well planned that I always look for an opportunity to go, I know I will have fun, make new friends, hear great stories, or great music and what ever else may surprise me. The staff is top notch and makes every effort to ensure everyone is comfortable and well taken care of. I am eternally greatful for The Georgia Conservancy!

Fantastic group -- I have gone on both educational and volunteer trips with the conservancy and have enjoyed them all. Sometimes we go to parks to help clean and do maintenance. Sometimes we go on kayak trips and camp. The park officials have been very grateful for our help, and we have had a chance to go to some beautiful places. Some of them are restricted and we would not have had a chance to see them otherwise. We usually have a naturalist with us to help us understand the area we are visiting.

I've been involved with many non profits in GA for years, and this is, by far, the most important environmental organization in GA. The extremely professional leadership and staff work deligently to make a real difference for GA. They stay on top of the important issues and offer educated guidance to politicians and individuals. Their outreach programs are striving to reach new Georgians and help them learn to love our natural environments and how best to protect and preserve them. GREAT Organization!
