Conservation Easements

A conservation easement is a legal contract between a landowner and a qualified entity (such as a nonprofit organization) to ensure that lands are maintained in a conservation use state. The easement ensures protection of the conservation values of a property while the owner retains ownership and use.

GWF holds conservation easements on over 7,250 acres in Georgia, the biggest being land surrounding the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in Charlton County.  Other easements are located in Grady, Hall and Newton counties.

In addition, GWF owns over 425 acres in Georgia, most of which consists of natural environments that are unique and critically important to preserve.
