The Preserve is CLOSED, But Nature is OPEN!
During the past several weeks, we have closely monitored the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Glynn County and have carefully followed advice from county, state, and national health agencies including the Centers for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC). As confirmed cases have continued to rise, and with the safety of all in mind, the Land Trust has made the difficult decision to once again close Cannon's Point Preserve. This closure will remain in effect through the month of July.
Land Trust Sells 20-Acre Property to National Park Service
In March of 2019, President Donald Trump signed into law the John D. Dingell Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act (S.47). This Act allowed the National Park Service to acquire the 20.852 acres that the Saint Simons Land Trust had been holding. In February 2020, the sale of the Northern Marsh Tract to the NPS was completed.
These culturally and environmentally significant acres, known as the Northern Marsh Tract, have now officially become a part of St. Simons’ Fort Frederica National Monument that is owned and managed by the National Park Service.
The Preserve is OPEN!
