Sapelo Island Service Weekend

Join the Georgia Conservancy and Keeping it Wild for a weekend on Sapelo Island that combines natural beauty, African American cultural heritage and service work. The difficulty level is rated at medium (guests are expected to do service work).

The weekend of October 12 – 14, we will be hosting our annual Sapelo Island Service Weekend with our partners at the Department of Natural Resources, The University of Georgia Marine Science Institute and the Sapelo Island Cultural and Revitalization Society.

Service work will include trail maintenance, historical restoration and helping the Geeche Hog Hummock Community prepare for their annual cultural festival, which brings over 1,000 people to the island each year!

When not performing service work (volunteers will work from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday) guests will enjoy historical tours of the island (including a lighthouse tour), exploration of Sapleo’s pristine beaches and the fantastic Reynolds Mansion.

Guests can choose to stay in the historic Reynolds Mansion ($250 double occupancy) or in the cozy UGA Marine Science Dorms ($160 per person, $260 per couple).

Trip fee includes all meals and ferry transportation.

This trip is made possible through generous funding from Recreation Equipment Incorporated.

    The island is AMAZING, having the bicycles available made it easy to explore and really see the different areas and landscapes. We always get so much from the service weekends that I wish we were able to do more work. There were a wide variety of task available so everyone was able to give at their level.
