On this school trip to Jekyll Island students will learn about the ecology of this unique habitat while volunteering with conservation programs. The natural environment of Jekyll Island is a magnolia–live oak forest canopy with a forest floor dominated by palmetto and scrub oak. The tidal creeks and streams of the salt marsh provide a variety of resources, including seasonal fish and shellfish. Explore the Georgia Sea Turtle Center where each program explores the adaptations, behavior, and threats for endangered sea turtles that inhabit Georgia’s coast, opening student’s eyes to the fascinating world of coastal ecosystems.
