About Lumpkin Coalition:
Lumpkin Coalition is a diverse group of wonderful folks -- young and
not-so-young, working and retired, Georgia natives and transplants from
all over the country -- united by a common commitment to preserving and
enhancing the special quality of life here in north Georgia. Many of our
members share an intense interest in nature and outdoor activities such as
hiking and biking, camping and backpacking, swimming and fishing,
canoeing and kayaking, climbing and caving. We have students and
teachers, artists and musicians, computer gurus and conservationists,
writers and photographers, engineers and organic farmers; you name it
and we probably have one of them volunteering!
We are all volunteers, so 100% of the work we do and the funds we raise,
go toward our mission-based projects. The Contact Us page has
information to put you in touch with a number of people who can tell you
how to attend one of our meetings, or answer any questions you may have
about the Lumpkin Coalition and its activities.
