The Southern Conservation Trust has served the state of Georgia for over 24 years, and we rely heavily on the support of members. Our members have given us the ability to conserve over 16,000 acres throughout Georgia and Eastern Tennessee and to open six nature areas to the public in Fayette County, protecting greenspace, conserving forests, safeguarding rivers, sheltering wildlife, providing environmental education, and ensuring that everyone has access to nature in our own communities throughout the great state of Georgia.

By becoming a member of the Southern Conservation Trust, your partnership allows us to continue to protect additional land across the state and to provide the highest level of public nature areas and outdoor education programming. Each membership allows us to ensure that land in the state of Georgia is protected for a lifetime.
