Our Mission

To preserve the island's natural and scenic character and to enhance the quality of life for present and future generations

The mission of the St. Simons Land Trust is to preserve the island's natural and scenic character and to enhance the quality of life for present and future generations.

The mission of the St. Simons Land Trust is to preserve the island's natural and scenic character, and to enhance the quality of life for our island community for present and future generations.

 

The Canopy Campaign

To fulfill this Mission, the Land Trust has launched an aggressive fundraising and acquisition plan. The Canopy Campaign: An Overarching Strategy to Preserve St. Simons South to North is the result of a comprehensive evaluation of every known undeveloped property still existing on the island. The multi-phased capital campaign is structured first to meet the generous $4 Million Challenge Grant committed by The Anschutz Foundation in January 2018. By matching the Foundation’s challenge, we will raise $8 Million to purchase properties under contract. We will then be positioned to launch the next phase of the campaign, where we develop a Future Opportunities Fund to reach our vision of protecting and preserving 2,000 acres island-wide.

Participants either biked to the event or caught one of the trolleys that were dropping off and picking up runners and guests from nearby Oglethorpe Elementary School’s parking lot and delivering them to the Middle Road entrance at the Preserve.
