Because Georgia continues to be in a “high risk” period with the COVID-19 virus and is one of approximately 21 states that are considered “red zones” with increasing numbers of confirmed cases, we have decided to keep Cannon’s Point Preserve closed temporarily. In addition, Glynn County is considered a hot-spot within the state, with high rates of “community spread” and with local hospitals at capacity.
To ensure maximum safety of all CPP volunteers and docents, Preserve visitors, and SSLT staff, Cannon’s Point Preserve will remain closed until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation daily and to follow guidelines from the Glynn County Public Health System and other local, state, and national authorities. During this time, we hope you will visit other Land Trust properties that do not require staffing and where you can hike, bike, and explore on your own.
Thank you for your understanding as we remain cautiously optimistic about reopening the Preserve later this summer or in the fall.
