Closed for Business? Keep Our State Parks & Wildlife Areas Open

Issue

Georgia's Department of Natural Resources Board has proposed budget cuts to a department that is already strapped. Your lands, air, and water are assets that drive tourism, support economic growth, improve public health, and provide wildlife habitat.

Georgia's systems of parks and historic sites, water and air assets, and wildlife management areas play a vital role in promoting the health and economic well-being of our state. In addition to cleaning the air we breathe and the water we drink, our public lands help keep Georgia's economy vibrant by attracting retirees, knowledgeable workers, hikers, hunters and fishermen. Our state parks and wildlife management areas provide hundreds of millions of dollars in benefits to Georgians each and every year. Our air and water are the basic foundation of our economy. Cutting DNR's budget is a short-sighted decision with long-term consequences.
