Friends

Dear Foundation Friends,

When you visit Jekyll Island, it’s almost impossible NOT to take great pictures. You probably have a few on your smart phone of yourself with Jekyll’s pristine beauty or historic buildings in the background. If this is indeed the case, why not share? Post them to Facebook and Instagram using #JekyllIslandFoundation. Chances are you’ll see them here, and help us make even more friends!

Thanks,

Dion Davis
Executive Director

#DidYouKnow - Goodyear Cottage was built in 1906 for the lumber baron, Frank Henry Goodyear of Buffalo, New York. There are seven rooms and a half-bath on the first floor and five bedrooms and three baths on the second floor. The third floor originally contained a servant’s room, a bath, and a storage area.

The house was restored in 1974 and is now used as a center for the creative arts, housing the Jekyll Island Arts Association and the Jekyll Island Pottery Guild. Exhibits by both local and visiting artists are on display monthly.

Ongoing historic preservation efforts in Jekyll’s Historic District are made possible through visitation to the Mosaic, Jekyll Island Museum and through donations to the Jekyll Island Foundation.

This beautiful bird is known as the Great Egret. It migrates toward warmer temperate regions, so you are likely to find many on the island.

Help advance efforts towards bird conservation on Jekyll Island by donating today.

Established in 2007, the @georgiaseaturtlecenter (GSTC) is a hospital that primarily cares for sick and injured turtles—the only wildlife hospital focusing on turtles in the state of Georgia. The mission of the GSTC encompasses three pillars: rehabilitation, education, and research. Through these pillars guests are connected to individual patient stories and the broader threats these animals face.
