The Ocmulgee Land Trust is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving local property and handling conservation easements along the Ocmulgee River and throughout Middle Georgia. The mission of the Ocmulgee Land Trust is to conserve Georgia properties, to protect water quality, preserve wildlife habitat, and to enhance the quality of life for future generations. OLT provides support of economic activity in our region by providing a favorable conduit for business and industrial expansion through the appropriate use of mitigation lands to offset the impacts of this expansion.
The Ocmulgee Land Trust was started in 2004 by Burton Lee as he sensed a need in the Middle Georgia area. The Land Trust has been coordinated by NewTown Macon since its inception although monetary donations for the trust are handled by the Community Foundation of Central Georgia. Upon his retirement as President and CEO of NewTown Macon, Mike Ford became the President of the Land Trust.
The Ocmulgee Land Trust is operated by its Executive Director Kensey Rabun. Her roles include land conservation, community outreach and education, fundraising, donor relations, and cultivating conservation efforts throughout Georgia
The Ocmulgee Land Trust accepts donations of cash, land, homes, conservation easements, and buildings that further its mission.
