Georgia Piedmont Land Trust Inc
Civil War Battlefield Protection
GPLT protects several areas of Civil War battlefields, near Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park in partnership with the Civil War Trust.
GPLT believes our heritage deserves protection for future generations.
We protect 600+ acres of Civil War battlefields.
GPLT protects several hundred acres of wetlands for the benefit of all Georgians.
Wetlands within and downstream of urban areas are particularly valuable, counteracting the greatly increased rate and volume of surface-water runoff from pavement and buildings. The holding capacity of wetlands helps control floods and prevents water logging of crops. Preserving and restoring wetlands together with other water retention can often provide the level of flood control otherwise provided by expensive dredge operations and levees.
Over 2,000 Acres Protected
GPLT has over 2,000 acres of land under protection.
GPLT has a diverse portfolio of protected properties to include Civil War battlefields in partnership with the Civil War Trust and the American Battlefields Protection Program, a green cemetery in partnership with the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, watershed restoration properties, conservation subdivision greenspaces, granite outcrops, habitats with threatened species and a community garden in partnership with citizens like you who care about green and open spaces in their communities.
