for Wildlife

2020 Weekend for Wildlife Save the Date January 31–February 1 2020

W is a one-of-a-kind getaway to one of the most prestigious of Georgia’s coastal resorts. As guests of this magnificent two-day event, you will have the opportunity to participate in unique excursions, as well as an exciting banquet and verbal auction featuring original artwork and exclusive treasures. As you bask in the luxurious comforts of Sea Island’s amenities, you will—most importantly—serve as VIPs to conservation of Georgia’s natural resources.


Join the Governor, First Lady and DNR Commissioner Mark Williams for the 31st annual Weekend for Wildlife, Jan. 31–Feb. 1 at the Cloister Resort, Sea Island.

Visit wild coastal places on trips led by experts. Enjoy a Friday night cocktail hour, private concert and our silent auction rich in getaways, artwork and wildlife memorabilia. Revel in Saturday night’s exciting banquet and verbal auction.

Weekend for Wildlife is one of the nation’s most successful conservation events, raising more than $10 million since 2001 to conserve Georgia's nongame—native wildlife not legally fished for or hunted.

The 2020 Weekend will continue to provide valuable support for the DNR Wildlife Resources Division’s Nongame Conservation Section, which depends largely on fundraisers, grants and direct contributions for its vital mission: conserving nongame. These animals and plants include hundreds of special-concern species. Nongame, and the habitats they depend on, enrich our lives, our economy and our future.

Through the Georgia Natural Resources Foundation, Weekend for Wildlife will also strengthen the broad mission of DNR, to sustain, enhance, protect and conserve Georgia’s natural, historic and cultural resources for present and future generations.
