2015 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN PRESERVATION SERVICE

ST. SIMONS LAND TRUST
St. Simons Island, Glynn County

The St. Simons Land Trust has been instrumental in preserving land for conservation purposes on St. Simons Island. A significant victory came in 2010, when the Land Trust saved a 2.3 acre lot of live oaks that for more than 50 years was the location of the Old Sea Island Stables. In 2012 the Land Trust completed the purchase of Cannon's Point, one of the largest undeveloped tracts of maritime forest on the island. The remains of a plantation owned by John Couper, Cannon's Point is rich in natural and cultural history, including the remains of two plantation buildings. Relying on donors and strong community support, St. Simons Land Trust continues to acquire, preserve and interpret historic landscapes on this popular island for future generations to explore and appreciate.
