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.


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.
