Imagine a place where every resident can walk or ride easily from their home to a park or natural area for recreation and respite. Where children can ride their bikes safely from parks to wilderness areas, on trails and to fishing docks. Where visitors experience the natural richness and wildlife of our rare ecosystems, and take home an impression of St. Simons that inspires them to take conservation action in their own community. Imagine a community of people who value the natural and scenic character of St. Simons Island, and who care deeply about the natural and cultural assets of the island. These engaged stewards of the island educate others through their actions and their ethics. The St. Simons Land Trust’s efforts have impact beyond St. Simons, and our work inspires a conservation ethic in present and future generations.
