index webb
Officials with the Georgia Conservancy's Land Conservation Program are concerned that many Georgia landowners aren't aware of the range of conservancy programs that are available to them. According to officials with the organization, working farm land, land along swamps, marshes, or streams, and pastures and grasslands may be eligible for one of the protection programs sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture. Those programs include the Farm and Ranch Protection Program, the Wetland Reserve Program, and the Grassland Reserve Program.
