Amendment 1: Passed!

Thanks to you and the thousands of Georgians who spread the word and voted yes for the Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Amendment, we have made history.

For the first time, Georgia has a dedicated funding source for land and water conservation. This means our Department of Natural Resources has steady, reliable funding to protect water quality, improve parks and trails, create new hunting and fishing opportunities, and maintain our public lands. To cap it off, this is happening without creating or increasing taxes. Way to go Georgia! 

There are so many ways that you can help keep our rivers clean and beautiful. Responding to Action Alerts or reaching out to your elected representatives. Find your way to get involved!
