Local Land Trust Announces Grant from Wildlife Foundation

Southern Conservation Trust (Fayette County) is pleased to announce that Norcross Wildlife Foundation of Massachusetts has made a generous donation to the Trust to purchase updated office equipment and print conservation brochures to support its conservation, educational and administrative activities. The Trust has added a Development Director, Bonnie Helander, and is expanding its conservation program throughout the Southern Crescent in 2008.

Norcross Wildlife Foundation’s mission is to protect, enhance and expand habitat for wildlife and to propagate, restore and maintain populations of threatened and endangered native plants. The Foundation supports the efforts of conservation programs throughout the country.

Southern Conservation Trust is a non-profit land trust formed to maintain, protect and enhance natural areas entrusted to its care for public use in the counties south of metro Atlanta. The Trust owns, manages and protects over 1,300 acres, including two beautiful nature areas in Peachtree City – Flat Creek Nature Area and Line Creek Nature Area. In 2008 the Trust is working to open two preserves in Fayette County for residents’ enjoyment – Sams Lake Bird Sanctuary and Morgan Grove Preserve.
