Georgia Outdoor Stewards is a meetup group started by the Georgia Conservancy and sponsored by REI.

The idea is to give nonprofits, clubs and community groups a place to host hikes, camp outs, paddles, or bike rides that have a stewardship focus - while providing the public with a "one stop shop" for stewardship adventures!

What does "stewardship" mean?

Stewardship events must be expressly designed to promote outdoor volunteerism, remove barriers to outdoor access for diverse communities, or encourage environmental protection.

Our best events have elements of all three!

Nonprofits, clubs and community groups that use Georgia Outdoor Stewards have access the Georgia Conservancy's gear bank of camping equipment - plus video equipment to help capture and share the story!

If you are interested in becoming an organizer and/or posting your stewardship events - please contact

Here are a few of the groups that will be leading trips through GOS:
