Nature Areas

The Southern Conservation Trust has six public nature areas located in Fayette County, GA. Our public nature areas allow the community to experience greenspace and learn about the environment. Our public nature areas are open from sunrise to sunset every day.

Please follow the rules below when visiting any of our nature areas:

  • All dogs must be leashed and clean up after your pets
  • Please stay on the marked trails
  • Place all trash in designated bins
  • If you cross paths with any wildlife, please let it be

Our public nature areas are available for members of the community to use for events. Please visit the Events page to learn more about renting our public nature areas.

Our Community Preserves Include The Ridge Nature Area, Sams Lake Bird Sanctuary, Morgan Grove Nature Area, Nesmith Preserve, the Fayette Environmental Education Center, and Wildcat Woods.
