Georgia Legacy: Establishing Dedicated Funding for Conservation in Georgia

Friday, December 11, 2015 7:30-9:00 am
All Saints’ Episcopal Church
With the goal of conserving Georgia’s precious natural resources – its people, jobs, land and water – The Conservation Fund, The Georgia Conservancy, Georgia Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, Park Pride and The Trust for Public Land joined forces in 2010 to form a coalition called Georgia Legacy.

Georgia currently lacks a sustainable source of funding for land and water conservation – Georgia Legacy seeks to change that.

The aim of Georgia Legacy is to support conservation initiatives in three priority areas, by establishing a dedicated funding mechanism to:

– Allow for the acquisition of lands critical to the protection of water, wildlife and outdoor recreation
– Assist local governments in the acquisition and improvement of parks and trails
– Provide for the stewardship of existing conservation lands

Join them to discuss and learn more about Georgia Legacy.

Panelists:
Stacy Funderburke, Assistant Regional Counsel, The Conservation Fund
Deron Davis, Executive Director, The Nature Conservancy in Georgia
Curt Soper, Georgia/Alabama State Director, The Trust for Public Land
Overview & Introduction from:
Leah Dixon, Advocacy Director, The Georgia Conservancy
