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 - Moss Cottage was built in 1896. Its rustic appearance is a reflection of the casual lifestyle of the original club members, who sought to escape from the pressures of the city to hunt, fish, and enjoy the natural beauty of the coastal environment.

In the 1920s, the last home on Red Row was converted into a schoolhouse for children of the African American employees of the Jekyll Island Club. Inspiring stories like that of Anna Hill—daughter of Charlie Hill, who grew up on Jekyll and later returned to teach at the schoolhouse after completing college in Atlanta—stand out amongst years of history and culture in Red Row, dating back over 100 years.

Visit Mosaic, Jekyll Island Museum to discover more inspiring stories like that of Anna Hill. Learn more about Anna Hill and the schoolhouse by clicking the 'For the Record' link in our bio.

A recent donor-funded project is benefitting Horton Pond and the surrounding viewing area—keeping it safe for wildlife and maintaining this beautiful natural area for visitors. As a manmade pond with no incoming water source, the risk of stagnation is high. A new aeration system—entirely solar-powered—is helpfully limiting algae and is providing oxygen for the pond’s fish. Make a visit to Horton Pond soon and enjoy wildlife, plants, water, and trails.

They’re a favorite Jekyll Island feature—the gorgeous canopy of live oaks lining the roadways, and the wide variety of other trees dotting our coastal environment. Cliff Gawron, director of landscape and planning for the @jekyll_island Authority, works hard with his team to preserve the beauty of each tree native to the island. Challenges to tree health are always present—saltwater, tides, temperatures, commercial development, and periodic hurricane events. Read more about the continued work needed to help Jekyll’s tree canopy grow and thrive using the 'For the Record' link in our bio.
