Join SSLT in Honoring National Endangered Species Day
Did you know that more than 1,300 species of plants and animals in the United States are currently listed as either threatened or endangered? Although extinctions occur naturally, there is growing scientific evidence suggesting that, because of human activity, the current rate of extinction is much higher than the natural rate of the past.
A Message for Earth Day
Happy Earth Day 2018! In celebration of respecting our planet, we want to pay tribute to the people who have worked tirelessly over the past nearly 20 years to protect and preserve the natural beauty of our small corner of the earth - St. Simons Island and the Georgia Coast.
1810 Frederica in the News
In early March the Land Trust announced the purchase of 1810 Frederica Rd., a 1.42-acre parcel that was the subject of tremendous controversy in 2016 when it was proposed as the site for a dollar store or other commercial enterprise. The announcement of this acquisition sparked an overwhelming amount of support within the community.
Land Trust Purchases 1810 Frederica
The St. Simons Land Trust is pleased to announce the purchase of 1810 Frederica Road, a 1.42-acre parcel that was the subject of tremendous controversy in 2016 when it was proposed as the site for a dollar store or other commercial enterprise. Zoned “highway commercial,” there are very few restrictions on the land’s future use. The property was tied up in litigation for more than a year before a final court ruling was handed down earlier this month.
