Here’s how you know
Local, state, and federal government websites often end in .gov. State of Georgia government websites and email systems use “georgia.gov” or “ga.gov” at the end of the address. Before sharing sensitive or personal information, make sure you’re on an official state website.
Call 1-800-GEORGIA to verify that a website is an official website of the State of Georgia.
Through education, assistance, and oversight, we help local conservation districts, landowners, and governments wisely use and maintain the soil and water resources for all Georgians.
