Finding the Flint Documentary
By: Stacy Funderburke
Finding the Flint is an ambitious initiative to restore Georgia’s Flint River near its headwaters at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world’s busiest airport, and connect headwaters communities and a variety of partners and funders to larger landscape scale conservation downstream. Our Finding the Flint Coordinator, Hannah Palmer, is an incredible champion for Finding the Flint and the communities surrounding the river. Through her tireless efforts and the leadership of The Conservation Fund, we are putting the Flint River back on the map and creating an innovative model to conserve one of Georgia’s most important rivers.
“Making Finding the Flint a reality will require a coalition of partners, and the good news is that’s how it started. We have to continue building out that coalition—with neighborhoods, community organizations, corporate partners and funders—for restoration to happen upstream and for large landscape protection to happen downstream. I know it’s possible.”
