Southern Conservation Trust protects more than 1,900 acres and attracts more than 30,000 visitors annually to four public use nature areas.  Since 1993 The Trust has worked diligently to enhance the current and future quality of life in the Metro Atlanta Southern Crescent by making greenspace accessible, conserving natural resources and providing environmental education in our communities for today's and future generations. Our vision is to ensure communities always include natural areas for people and wildlife. The Trust partners with landowners who want to protect their property from development, shield watersheds and the quality and supply of our water, and/or encourage outdoor exercise, education, and nature appreciation and access.

The Trust board has targeted increased environmental education as the best way to accomplish our mission of nature preservation.  Our strategic plan calls for expanded programming and exploratory self-education as avenues to enhance our community-based conservation projects. Two efforts, in particular, could be greatly advanced through your support:  an outdoor education classroom, and a strategic effort for developing a new public nature area.


The two efforts we are asking for your help with are: 
1. To raise $5,000 to create the paddle trail infrastructure for in/out puts.
2. To raise $7,000 to help develop a new 308 acre public nature area in the heart of Fayette County. Trails are being blazed, in-kind services and materials have been committed. With your help we hope to open this park with hiking trails, mountain biking trails, picnic areas, welcome center, etc. in late 2015/ early 2016. 

The Ridge Nature Area entrance.
 
Your support will be instrumental in these efforts.
