What comes to mind when I think of Georgia Conservancy paddling trips? Bright white egrets gliding overhead, spanish moss along the banks, a baby alligator perched 8 feet away. A low-country boil with local oysters, gourmet cheese from Sweetgrass Dairy, acoustic guitar, campfires, owls calling good night. Star-filled skies and fresh air.
I'm excited to take on the challenge of raising money for The Georgia Conservancy. Simply put, The Conservancy is dedicated to protecting the beautiful natural resources across the state of Georgia.
I've had the privilege of joining a few GC adventures. These kayaking and camping trips involved people of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels. Each time, I left the weekend with great memories, new friends, and a stronger appreciation for the unique rivers and wildlife of Georgia.
The people of The Georgia Conservancy dedicate themselves, with amazing energy and passion, to preserving the state's resources. It is because of what they do that I and thousands of others have witnessed first-hand the beauty along Georgia's rivers.
Please consider a donation of any size to The Georgia Conservancy.
Over the next 12 months we’re raising the bar: conserving more than 30,000 - 35,000 acres of land, educating more than 3,500 people in “Georgia’s outdoor classroom” that we call our trips program, and helping thousands of students and parents breath a little easier with our school siting workshops. But, truthfully, the issue that gives us great concern is maintaining steady handed advocacy on behalf of the gem of Georgia’s coast: Cumberland Island.
With so much to do, we’ve had to expand annual fundraising goals. We’re currently $50,000 behind our expanded funding needs and we need your help.
For our 50th Anniversary, we've asked some of our most important donors and members to share their Georgia story as a Georgia Conservancy Storyteller.
Thank you for supporting our storytellers and the Georgia Conservancy!
