Connoisseur Trip to Ossabaw Island: March 2-3
Located 20 miles south of Savannah, GA, Ossabaw is one of the best preserved of Georgia’s magnificent barrier islands. With a total area of 26,000 acres, its many natural zones progressing from the ocean include beaches, dunes, meadows, ponds, maritime forest and freshwater and saltwater marshes. The island was inhabited by Native Americans from as early as 2200 B.C. to the 18th Century and offers numerous archaeological sites as well as slave cabins, a late 19th Century prefab house and a grand 1920s mansion in the midst of undisturbed wildlife. Owned by the State of Georgia and managed through a public-private partnership with the Ossabaw Island Foundation, Ossabaw Island has been designated as a Heritage Preserve by the state, with its use restricted to natural, scientific and cultural study, research and education.
Please note that Ossabaw Island is not open to the public. HBF has special permission for the trip.
