Since 1967, the Georgia Conservancy has been guiding trips across the state that showcase Georgia's imperiled natural resources, and provide the public with the opportunity to advocate for their protection. We use our network of partners and peers to provide public access to barrier islands, river systems and nature preserves that are normally inaccessible or off-limits to the public.

Join us as we paddle the still, black waters of the Okefenokee Swamp. Come along as we snorkel in the crystal clear waters of the Conasauga River. Take our service trips to Cumberland, Ossabaw and Sapelo islands and help maintain pristine beaches and forest trails.

The majority of our trips are family friendly and designed to accommodate everyone, regardless of age or outdoor skill level. Please let us know if you have a special need or an impairment. We'll find a way to accommodate you.
