Urban Conservation in Atlanta Webinar

Georgia

Join us for an informative discussion of our projects in the South River watershed where we are working with a diverse group of conservation supporters, volunteers, and leaders to advance the South River Forest vision and to advocate for the improved health of Atlanta's natural resources.

For decades, The Nature Conservancy has worked to conserve lands and waters in Georgia by protecting critical places — mostly in rural areas — and the plants and animals that call these places home. Yet, most Georgians live in the metropolitan Atlanta area which is expected to grow to more than 8 million people by 2040. 

Urban designer Ryan Gravel will join Ayanna Williams, director of TNC’s Healthy Cities program in Georgia, and watershed coordinator Alex Lamle, to share details about our vision for the South River Forest.  They'll also discuss the key role of natural solutions like new and better-stewarded greenspaces in addressing urban challenges like stormwater runoff, air pollution, and heat islands.
