Since 1967, the Georgia Conservancy has been guiding trips across the state that showcase Georgia’s imperiled natural resources and provide the public with the opportunity to advocate for their protection. We use our network of partners and peers to provide access to barrier islands, river systems and nature preserves normally inaccessible or off-limits to the public.
From Cloudland Canyon to Cumberland Island – we hike, paddle and conserve this state!
What started out as a half-dozen trips per year for a handful of Conservancy members has grown into a program that can serve hundreds of people each weekend, many from communities of color that have historically not been included in outdoor recreation opportunities.
Our expanded 2015 offering of service weekends, adventure trips and Heartland Rivers of Georgia paddles, will touch every corner of the state and provide outdoor enthusiasts, from novice to seasoned, a unique introduction to Georgia’s incredible natural resources.
Our hand-selected Top 10 Trips of 2015 are open for registration! The rest of our Stewardship Trips will roll out in seasonal releases across 2015. Fear of missing out on a great time? Become a Georgia Conservancy supporter to receive notification of trip releases and Conservancy updates!
Thank you to REI for their leadership and support of the Georgia Conservancy’s Stewardship Trips Program!
