Georgia is home to many natural wonders - rivers, mountains, vallies, swamps - we can't even begin to count the breathtaking scenes across our great state. But we live with an e
ver increasing threat on our home.
Close to 40,000 miles of our streams are in constant danger due to pollution and building developments. We could lose up to 22% of our forests over the next five decades, losing more than 100 acres of green space per day.
Georgia can take pride in being the 10th best states in the nation for solar power potential, however, we are listed as the 38th state in nation solar power use.
Education is key in solving our most dire environmental issues. Environmental groups in Georgia are working to raise awareness about these issues and ultimately change Georgians' daily behaviors to clean, conserve and protect the lands, wildlife, waterways and air we all appreciate each day.
