Annual Membership Supper
Saturday, March 29, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
Join us for the best darn chili around to celebrate the Conservancy's members and all the good work over the past year. It's the most fun, relaxed party of the year - it's in a barn afterall! Wear your boots...
Sourced from local meats, our venison chili, beef chili, and chicken chili are paired with the Caboose's potatoes, salads, and desserts and of course Sweetwater Beer. A speaker will join us to share a successful preservation story, and you'll enjoy the social gathering on one of the highest points in Morgan County - part of which is permanently protected by a donated conservation easement!
When & Where
- Incorporated as Georgia’s first countywide conservancy in 2000, the Conservancy now serves both locally and statewide as a resource for protecting natural, agricultural, and historic resources. To date the Conservancy has helped permanently protect over 2,550 acres in Morgan County through the donation of conservation easements by private landowners. To compliment that local, permanent land conservation effort, the Conservancy facilitates temporary land conservation by supporting the region’s agricultural industry in order to retain the area’s historic agrarian landscapes: the organization is responsible for inspiring private and public investment in a regional food hub, creating and publishing FARMeander (the state’s first farm trail), and creating a pilot Farm to School Program in the Morgan County School System. Accessible education for the public has always been top priority, evidenced by 50 educational forums on conservation and development topics, Georgia’s first county-wide Greenprint, and four Greenprint Rambles. To support statewide land conservation efforts, the Conservancy has led an informal coalition of the state’s land trusts in advocating for a robust Georgia Conservation Tax Credit program.
