There are few things that impact Georgia’s economy and quality of life as equally as our natural resources. Our $59 billion tourism industry would not be nearly as robust without our beautiful beaches, marshes, lakes and mountain ranges. Maintaining the delicate balance between economic progress and land conservation is a priority for organizations like ours who care about our state’s future. It is also why we are strong proponents of the Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Act (HB332), which was approved by the House Natural Resources Committee during the 2017 legislative session.
