Jun. 19—ATLANTA — Gov. Brian Kemp recognized three corporate forest landowners recently for their stewardship and land management practices benefiting wildlife across Georgia. Weyerhaeuser, Forest Investment Associates and Georgia Power are the agency's 2023 Forestry for Wildlife partners.

Coordinated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division, the Forestry for Wildlife Partnership is a voluntary program that has promoted sustainable forest and wildlife conservation as part of forest management for some 25 years. Partner projects focus on improvements that sync with Georgia's Bobwhite Quail Initiative and State Wildlife Action Plan, two statewide strategies.
