Join the Georgia Conservancy on December 9-11 for a winter weekend camping adventure to Cumberland Island National Seashore.
Cumberland Island is one of Georgia's greatest natural treasures and it holds an important place at the Conservancy. In 1972, through the advocacy of the Georgia Conservancy and other conservation-focused organizations and citizens, Cumberland was established as a National Seashore, providing for the protection of the island's upland maritime forests, saltwater marsh and 17 miles of unspoiled beach.
In recent years, the Georgia Conservancy has hosted a number of service weekends on Cumberland Island and completed the restoration of Cumberland Island's Backcountry Trail System.
Utilizing the beautiful Sea Camp as our headquarters, we will enjoy fantastic a weekend on Cumberland that blends organized activities and relaxation. Sightseeing opportunities include organized hikes to the Dungeness Ruins and the Plum Orchard mansion. At night, we will enjoy group meals and a campfire while we listen to the waves of the Atlantic crash on the other side of the sand dunes. And what a sunrise...
