Welcome to T.E.R.N. We are a group of citizens who share a common interest in wildlife conservation who joined in 1992 to form T.E.R.N., Inc. -- The Environmental Resources Network.  T.E.R.N. is a nonprofit, 501 (3)(c) corporation, and is the official "Friends Group" of the Nongame Conservation Section, Wildlife Resources Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.  T.E.R.N.'s primary mission is to aid in the financial support of the Nongame Conservation Program and its vital conservation projects.  The Nongame Conservation Program relies primarily on private funding to carry out its mission.

News, meetings and events:

The 2024 Weekend for Wildlife in February brought in over $3,000,000 for the Department of Natural Resources, Nongame Conservation Program. The event was held at The Cloister on Sea Island.  TERN earned $71,000 for its effort and contributions to the event. 

The next Weekend for Wildlife will be January 31 and February 1, 2025 at The Cloister on Sea Island.
