Opportunities to Explore, Experience, and Protect our Coast
Coastal Champions are among our most passionate and steadfast supporters, giving monthly donations that directly support our work to protect Georgia’s coast. Currently, we have 91 Coastal Champions and we are hoping you will help us get to 100 by the end of February! These monthly commitments—however big or small—create a consistent and reliable foundation that sustains our work year-round.
Show your love for our coast by making a monthly commitment. Monthly giving is convenient and simple; membership automatically renews. It’s flexible; the amount you give can be changed or canceled at any time. Most importantly, your contributions sustain our work, allowing us to respond quickly to threats as well as plan ahead with confidence and invest in long-term strategies. Become a Coastal Champion today!
To all of our Coastal Champions, present and future: thank you for your support.
Become a Coastal Champion by Feb. 28 and receive your own copy of Cumberland Island: A Place Apart by Thornton W. Morris.

Our trivia this month invites you to take a few minutes to read Dr. Lanham’s piece, a few more minutes to contemplate his ideas, and a few minutes to send us your answer to the following:
Send your answer to Katie for a chance to win free OHM swag. Winner will be announced before the next edition of our Monthly Mile. Congratulations to Ruth McMullin, our first Monthly Mile trivia winner, who correctly identified the American oystercatcher!
The Monthly Mile is our newsletter connecting you to One Hundred Miles and our work along Georgia’s coast. We’re grateful for the time you take to educate yourself about issues affecting our coast; the energy you give by volunteering with us and our partner organizations; and the generosity you exhibit through your financial support. We cannot do our work without you!
If you have any questions about The Monthly Mile or other OHM communications, please contact Catherine.
