Discovering the People and Environments of the Past
Jekyll Island was a much different place when people first settled on this island.
Archaeological and paleo-ecological research tells the story of Jekyll’s past—how people lived on the island, interacting with plants and animals. This fascinating exploration of ancient times reaches back 4500 years.
Foundation donors have a unique opportunity to help us discover the unknowns of Jekyll Island’s deep history so that we can learn from this wealth of cultural and natural heritage.
Your contribution today will fund a comprehensive survey to identify and document the archaeological resources of Jekyll Island.
Putting these sites on the map is an essential first step towards preserving them and discovering the unique stories they harbor.
