A History of the Founders

According to one Founding Board Member, this photo represents the early days of ORLT, when the all-volunteer organization was "learning what a land trust was and what it should be doing." Through continuous learning, public outreach, and teamwork, 10 individuals laid the foundation for an organization that has since protected over 26,000 acres of greenspace in Georgia.

ORLT started with a single idea, “Let’s start a land trust,” but it would not be what it is today without the work of many incredible, dedicated people.

Join us as we celebrate ORLT's Founding Board Members and those individuals who have built and sustained us over the years.
