Future Generations Exploring The Wonders of 
St. Simons Island

Every day we strive to save what we love about St. Simons Island. It is a place where children can ride their bikes safely from parks to wilderness areas on trails beneath the tree canopy. It is a place with a strong community of people who are passionate about the natural and cultural histories of the island. It is here and through our work in land protection that we hope to inspire a conservation ethic in present and future generations. 

Below are a few recent examples of the next generation exploring the wonders of St. Simons Island, and learning about the benefits of conservation.

"When you have an appointment in the middle of the day, you might as well take the rest of the day off and have an adventure with your daughter!" says Chris, author of the Dabbler's Den video  who embarked on a hiking journey at Cannon's Point Preserve with his baby girl Lilah.  Watch the full video here!
"The best part of this whole process has been remembering what a fabulous day we had when we visited Cannon's Point last year. We will always cherish that memory!" says the parents of 7th grader Helena Hardi who won the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Reflections Photo Contest at the county and state levels by entering a picture she took while she visited Cannon's Point Preserve. The name of photograph is "Keep Your Feet On The Ground While You Let Your Imagination Fly." 
About 50 Brunswick High School A.P. Environmental Science students, under the direction of Mr. Stephen Kipp, visit Cannon's Point Preserve to learn about the rare ecology and habitat that exists in their backyards by hiking the preserve and viewing the Living Shoreline at Lawrence Creek.
