Conasauga River Alliance -- Saving Georgia's Rivers
The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is to conserve and protect fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the benefit of the American people. Best known for its national system of wildlife refuges, the Service also enforces federal wildlife laws, administers the Endangered Species Act, manages migratory bird populations, restores significant fisheries, and enhances wildlife habitat.
The Conasauga River and its watershed are home to a dozen threatened or endangered aquatic species plus a fascinating diversity of plants and wildlife above and below the rivers surface. The Fish and Wildlife Service enthusiastically supports the Conasauga River Alliance in protecting the ecological integrity of their community.
Together, this partnership of individuals, groups, state agencies and local governments can work to preserve the quality of life enjoyed along the Conasauga, while maintaining an environment beneficial to both people and wildlife.
