Coastal Estuarine Land Conservation Program



The Georgia Coastal Management Program participates in the national Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program (CELCP) as administered by NOAA. In 2005, the State developed Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Plan to compliment existing land protection efforts in the coastal region.  The Plan identifies conservation priorities for land acquisition that tailors the national program to the State’s coastal conservation needs. Georgia’s CELC Plan also gives clear guidance for the nomination and selection of land conservation projects within the State’s coastal boundary.
