Private landowners in Georgia, as part of the Georgia Land Conservation Program, donated conservation easements totaling more than 21,000 acres across the state. Their properties fall along key waterways that serve as drinking water sources and habitat for high-priority wildlife. Within the AMJV, James Dellinger donated a conservation easement on 1,205 acres in Murray County to Georgia Departmnet of Natural Resources. The property is surrounded on three sides by lands of the Chattahoochee National Forest, contains a two-mile stretch of the Conasauga River, and supports at least 15 high-priority wildlife species.
