How We're Responding to COVID-19

Statement from the Georgia Executive Director


During this unprecedented time in our world, I want you to know The Nature Conservancy in Georgia is actively supporting the COVID-19 response in our region.

Per guidance from the State of Georgia and public health experts, we have taken steps to ensure the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, supporters and partners. We have closed the Atlanta office and our team is working from home. All events through May have been canceled. For the time being, our prescribed fire crews are continuing their critical conservation work in landscapes across the state.

It is important now, more than ever, that we stay in communication and open our hearts and minds to understanding how we can help each other and our communities. We encourage everyone to do their part to slow the spread of the virus – please stay home and stay healthy. You can connect with us through social media by visiting our Facebook page and our Instagram profile. I hope the stories you find there will inspire and remind you of the restorative power of nature. 

Nature has always provided an enduring peace in challenging times. The Nature Conservancy’s commitment to the mission has not waned and we will continue our work to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.  

With Hope,

Deron Davis
