Enjoy 115 acres of scenic wildlife area woodland, wetland, meadow habitats and wildlife habitat gardens along the Alcovy River.
Alcovy Conservation CenterWalk through our forest along Dogwood trail, as it takes you to the edge of our Tupelo Gum river swamp, along the Alcovy River.

Using the magnificent Alcovy River & Swamps as an interpretive backdrop, the Alcovy Conservation Center provides quality education and training opportunities for these leaders who will deliver the conservation message to the next generation. To date, workshops hosted at the ACC include an issue summit on water policy and habitat steward, hunter safety, and EcoWatch trainings.

This Center means great things for the future of GWF. It doesn't change our focus, but it increases our ability to accomplish our mission. GWF remains dedicated to environmental education, sportsmen's issues, and land conservation. The Alcovy Conservation Center allows GWF to deliver our message more effectively to more people - to truly be the community service organization we were designed to be.

The main building complex contains 15,000 square feet of office, lecture, classroom and library space, surrounded by native plant gardens. Situated on 115-acres along the Alcovy River, other facilities on the site include pavilions, an executive retreat house, and a quaint log cabin.
