Conservation

The Conservation Program works with landowners to protect and improve soil and water across Georgia. We work with landowners from the Blue Ridge to the Golden Isles to protect their property through conservation easements, and with farmers to help them access and implement federal programs. As a local and statewide partner, we collaborate to conduct outreach and help develop programs to remove invasive species and litter, improve soil and water quality, and ensure Georgia’s unique rural landscapes and urban greenspaces are protected.

Athens Land Trust is an accredited Land Trust. The Land Trust Accreditation Program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever.
