PASSPORT TO PRESERVATION
A FUN JOURNEY FOR FAMILIES ACROSS ST. SIMONS ISLAND.
School children (and sometimes even adults) will discover the importance of preserving and protecting the forests, marshlands, and streams of a barrier island. They'll also learn about the different habitats of a barrier island such as the MARITIME FORST, SALTMARSH, DUNES, and BEACH.
Activities include SCAVENGER HUNTS on Land Trust properties, FUN FACTS on the WILDLIFE and PLANTS that are native to the island, a NATURE LOG so that young explorers can keep a record of the plants and animals they have seen and heard, and a WORD SEARCH with the new vocabulary kids will have learned.
Thousands of Passports are being distributed across the Golden Isles:
- March 2021 issue of Elegant Island Living
- Local elementary schools on the St. Simons Island and in Brunswick
- Golden Isles Welcome Center (529 Beachview Drive, St. Simons Island)
- St. Simons Land Trust Office (1810 Frederica Rd., St. Simons Island)
With a smart phone, familes can scan QR Codes that provide links to additional information on the properties they visit, including those below.
