Make the Right Choice for Birds, Bass and Butterflies
From golden-winged warblers to Chatahoochee bass to monarch butterflies, Georgia’s wildlife depend on protected and abundant forests, waterways and parks to survive and flourish. By voting YES for Amendment 1 fellow Georgians can make the right choice for safeguarding vital habitat along rivers, lakes, streams and forested areas—and supporting the establishment and maintenance of parks both in the countryside and in our cities.
If passed, Amendment 1 will dedicate up to 80% of the existing sales and use tax on outdoor sporting goods to the protection of our state’s lands, water, and wildlife without raising or creating any new taxes or fees. That’s right—these benefits will come at no additional cost to Georgia taxpayers.
How will it work? The funds will be used to purchase and safeguard lands that protect clean water and wildlife habitat—and provide healthy places for all of us to enjoy the outdoors. Lands will be acquired for new parks and urban parks will be improved. And support for trail maintenance on already protected lands will be provided. Learn more about this historic opportunity.
