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. With its strong presence in Georgia, The Nature Conservancy 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 Mott support, the grantee completed an assessment of the impact of its work to date and identified new potential conservation strategies. Renewed support will allow the grantee to build on its findings and develop new strategies to improve natural flows in the lower Flint River.
