About this grant

The ecological health of Georgia’s Flint River, part of the larger Apalachicola-Chattahoochee- Flint River basin, is under stress due to a range of issues including chronic drought and poorly coordinated water use. The Nature Conservancy, a global conservation organization with a strong presence in Georgia, has been working in the lower segment of the Flint River to improve irrigation efficiency as a means to sustain the river’s natural flow. With this grant, the grantee will evaluate the impact of its work to date and identify new conservation strategies that may help further improve natural river flows.
