Preserving the natural and scenic character of St. Simons Island

THE CONTINUATION OF A COMMUNITY-WIDE EFFORT TO PRESERVE ST. SIMONS

Since its founding in 2000, the St. Simons Land Trust has acquired and protected more than 1,100 acres of rare habitat, maritime forests, tree canopy, and historic properties. We invite you to join us in continuing this important work.

A FUN JOURNEY FOR FAMILIES ACROSS ST. SIMONS ISLAND

The Passport to Preservation is an educational tool for elementary school-aged children who live on or visit the Georgia coast. Join us on a fun journey across St. Simons Island to learn why it is so important to preserve and protect the forests, marshlands, and streams where this barrier island’s plants and animals make their homes.

ST. SIMONS LAND TRUST PARTNERS WITH LOCAL BUSINESSES AND THEIR PATRONS.

Pennies for Preservation is a voluntary 1% giving program in which the business community helps raise funds to preserve and protect greenspaces, wilderness areas, trails, waterways, wildlife, important habitat, and tree canopy on St. Simons Island.
