About Georgia ForestWatch
For more than 35 years Georgia ForestWatch has pursued its mission to enhance the health of Georgia’s 867,000 acres of National Forest by protecting our forests and streams, advocating for natural processes and identifying opportunities to improve Forest management. These critical forests comprise 27 counties and are the headwaters for five major river systems in Georgia.
To pursue our mission we combine boots-on-the-ground data collection, scientific assessment, and grassroots advocacy to influence Forest Service management activities towards a vision of forests that have reached their full majesty, where intact natural processes support healthy ecosystems and thriving biodiversity, and where clean streams supply water to millions of Georgians.
