Georgia is blessed with remarkable land. Our unmatched scenic vistas and diverse landscapes afford us an infinite variety of beauty and recreation and our farms and timberlands help feed, clothe and shelter the world. The land filters our water supply as rainfall makes its way into streams or underground aquifers, restoring and purifying this essence of life. Significant slices of American history have played out on Georgia's clay hills and sandy coastal plains, so our land reconnects us with our past. When land gives us so much, we each have a charge to keep it protected and pass it on. Whether you control extensive acreage; a small parcel; or none at all; you can participate in conserving Georgia. Every Georgian plays a stewardship role in improving, caring for and passing our land forward to future generations.
