It’s February and the month of love. After running our #LOVEJekyllIsland photo contest in the fall, we heard and saw how many of you LOVE Jekyll Island. How exciting! And here are the results…

Each photo shared, each heartfelt testimony penned, were so special. Thank you for opening your hearts, your legacies, your family times, and your contining desire for ambassadorship of this special place. We feel the same way, which is why we work so hard to accomplish our mission.

Horton House to Horton Pond Trail Extension

Due to its popularity, we’re extending the Horton Pond Tupelo Trail! The proposed route, a historic road dating back presumably to the period when the Horton House was an occupied plantation, will physically connect two of Jekyll's historical and natural points of interest.

Hollybourne Cottage Lintel Repair

Hollybourne Cottage lintels (support structures) over the door and window openings have rusted, expanded, and then cracked the tabby walls, causing the exterior walls to become structurally unstable.  Your gift will assist with repair and preservation.

Assist the Georgia Sea Turtles Center in their efforts to help protect Jekyll terrapins.
