This month, the Madison-Morgan Conservancy received a generous grant from the Georgia Power Foundation to help fund the Junior Conservancy’s programming. The Junior Conservancy offers Morgan County high school students an opportunity to become actively involved in learning about and protecting local natural, agricultural and historic resources. Fourteen students serve on a mock board of directors, creating and executing their own conservation-related programming in four silos: education, civic, service and social.

Tony Ferguson, with the Georgia Power Foundation, delivered the check earlier this month, Ferguson said. “Georgia Power is proud to support the Madison-Morgan Conservancy. For Georgia Power, preserving the communities where we live, work and serve, is one way we believe we can help our state grow. The Georgia Power Foundation grant of $2,000 supports this initiative.”

With the help of local partners like the Georgia Power Foundation, the Conservancy is able to work toward the Junior Conservancy’s mission of engaging Morgan County’s youth in protecting special places for future generations.

  1. mission of the Madison-Morgan Conservancy is to provide public education on conservation matters and to protect and enhance the heritage and quality of life of the residents of Morgan County by preserving historic sites, greenspace, farmland, and timberland.
