Please join us on Thursday, November 19, at 6:30 pm for ecoBenefête 2020 - a fun and informative online evening with music, special guest appearances, a silent auction, and an awards presentation for Georgia Conservancy members and supporters, business and governmental leaders, and environmental champions from across Georgia.

This year, we will honor Dr. Johnny Bembry as this year’s Distinguished Conservationist for his lifelong work to advance sustainable forestry practices and the use of conservation easements and programs on working lands in Georgia and beyond.

The celebration of Georgia’s people and environment doesn’t end there. This year, we will present Brionté McCorkle, Executive Director of Georgia Conservation Voters, with the Longleaf Award, which is given annually by the Georgia Conservancy’s Generation Green board and recognizes the outstanding work of an emerging environmental or sustainability leader in metro Atlanta. Also being recognized is the legacy of Georgia’s Coastal Marshlands Protection Act, which has proven to be critical in the protection of the coastal ecosystem that we enjoy today.

ecoBenefête 2020 includes a silent auction with an array of specially curated items including art, outings, and unique experiences, all benefitting our work to protect Georgia’s natural resources, now and forever.
