Who We Are
The Center for a Sustainable Coast was formed in 1997 by a group of public-spirited environmental professionals and concerned citizens.
The purpose of our non-profit membership organization is to improve the responsible use, protection, and conservation of coastal Georgia's resources - natural, historic, and economic.
We envision a region where the environmental
interests of all existing and
future Georgians are properly represented in decisions that affect them.
The Center believes that the public deserves the best possible protection of our environmental interests and quality of life,
while enjoying responsible use of this region's diverse natural resources.
Join the Center & Help Sustain
Coastal Georgia's Quality of Life!
