We’re working towards a bold vision: to create a future where our coast has thriving communities, protected landscapes, and secure wildlife.
Since our earliest days, we’ve tackled issues on the local, state, and national stage—from reinstating Georgia’s 25-foot salt marsh buffer to leading the campaign against proposed offshore drilling and seismic testing. We’ve celebrated what we love about our coast and helped to usher in a new, more collaborative style of advocacy—one that celebrates the positive while pushing back against dangerous proposals that threaten our wild places, wildlife, and quality of life.
Preserving Georgia’s Coast. Forever.
One Hundred Miles protects and preserves Georgia’s 100-mile coast through advocacy, education, and citizen engagement.
It all starts with love.
Love for this place. Love for our people, wildlife, and historic culture. Love for our quality of life—the traditions we cherish now, and the ones we want to leave for our children and grandchildren.
From the beginning, our mission has been rooted in this simple understanding: that our 100 miles are a wonder of the world, worthy of our pride and deserving of our protection. All of us at One Hundred Miles are here because we love Georgia’s coast more than any other in the world.
