Save Cumberland Island National Seashore

Those of you who have visited Cumberland Island National Seashore know what a true treasure the Georgia barrier island is.

Now you can help save Cumberland.

Cumberland is in danger of having approximately 1,000 acres rezoned for development by the five Camden County Commissioners, potentially exposing the island to a destructive level of development.

Some organizations are fighting to protect the national seashore against the development and preserve its natural, pristine character for future generations.

Congress established the Cumberland Island National Seashore, which encompasses the entire island, to preserve this natural place in its undeveloped state.

The five commissioners of Camden County have the power to reverse their earlier decision which granted a hardship variance to Lumar LLC, allowing Lumar’s members to develop a portion of Cumberland’s maritime forests.

The Lumar tract is located in the heart of Cumberland Island adjacent to the Sea Camp campground, the most-visited area of the island.

If you are against the development of Cumberland, please send your thoughts to the commissioners. Find their emails and mailing address here  and below.

You also are invited speak out against this development at Camden County Commission meetings May 16 and June 13, 6PM at 400 E. Fourth St., Woodbine. (Government Services Complex, Second Floor, Room 252)FREE 100% cotton “Don’t Develop Cumberland Island” T-shirts will be be given to the first 50 people who arrive at the May 16 (6PM) Camden County Board of Commissioners’ meeting.
