Seven Small But Significant Land Trust Sites
As one runs, bikes, or drives along sections of Frederica Road on St. Simons Island, it is nearly impossible to miss the beauty of the moss-draped live oak tree canopy that delicately arches over this major traffic artery. Even those who have lived on the island for decades can still be awed and have hearts stirred when glancing up at this miles-long natural pergola created by the oaks, moss, and resurrection ferns.
This view, however, isn't consistent along all of Frederica Road. Commercial and residential development occurring off this main island corridor has reduced or removed sections of the canopy for which the island is famous. That is why the Land Trust is deeply grateful to the community members, businesses, land owners, and SSLT partners who have donated and helped to purchase more than nine acres of land on seven separate properties with nearly 2,000 feet of frontage on Frederica Road.
Moving south to north you'll find
these seven fairly small but significant properties that help
maintain the beauty and charm of St. Simons along its busiest road
and that help connect and protect the green, natural areas of the island.
