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!

With the 2017 nesting season behind us, Jekyll Island’s Wilson’s Plovers have migrated away from our beautiful beaches. We send with them our hope that they will return next year in late spring to nest again. See our Wilson’s Plover End of Season Report 2017: http://bit.ly/2CTiRs9

#ThrowbackThursday -- Typical of the early club cottages, Moss Cottage's 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.

#DidYouKnow -- Jekyll Island is run by the Jekyll Island Authority (JIA), whose duties include overall management and stewardship of Jekyll Island State Park. The JIA receives no public operating funds. Revenue is generated from leases, fees, and amenity operations. For this reason, the Jekyll Island Foundation (JIF) was created in 1999 to raise money for projects beyond the JIA's financial capabilities. Learn more: http://bit.ly/2v2bTcq
