This is an opportunity that rarely comes around! We’ll depart from Coffee Bluff Marina and explore some marshland on the way to Ossabaw Island, where we’ll be met by Naturalist and On-Island Coordinator, Jim Bitler. Jim will explain the history of this unique island jewel which was designated in 1978 as the first Georgia State Heritage Preserve. We will explore the historic North End Plantation site and get an update on the preservation and restoration of the tabby slave quarters which recently received national attention. The total time expected on Ossabaw Island itself is roughly two hours and expect a one-hour roundtrip boat ride. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and the cost per passenger is $85, which includes all Ossabaw Foundation fees, guide fees and transportation.
All active duty military as will be recognized and will receive a special admission rate of $5. Moon River Chorus will be performing a free patriotic concert at 11am in the museum’s rotunda.
