Who We Are

The Southern Conservation Trust is dedicated to elevating nature through exceptional stewardship throughout Georgia and the Southeast. Based in Georgia, the Southern Conservation Trust is a  US 501 (c)(3) public charity, EIN 58-2036727 that elevates nature through exceptional stewardship through over 57,000 acres of conserved land and public lands throughout the United States (Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Virginia, Colorado, Texas, and Kentucky) including 8 public nature areas in Fayette County, Georgia. We don’t just believe in protecting land, we believe people should have equal access to enjoy it.

Preserving nature is what gives us joy! So we’re focused on making sure that everyone has access to nature. We develop public nature areas, provide environmental education, and conserve tens of thousands of acres of land, waterways, and valuable habitat each year.

We depend on the ongoing support of individuals and corporate partners to ensure that the work we do will continue well into the future. We’re proud to say that we’ve been protecting the land we love and providing environmental education since 1993.
