The Landings Association has organized a Town Hall Meeting for Wednesday, June 16 at 7 p.m., in Palmetto Club’s ballroom to cover Hurricane Preparedness. The Club’s COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed during this meeting. As these protocols are rapidly changing due to the latest advice from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, please watch for more details closer to the meeting date.
Summer hours for the Marinas begin June 1. Operating hours for Landings Harbor are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Delegal Creek Marina’s hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
The Marinas staff are looking forward to the hustle and bustle this time of year traditionally brings. With the winter doldrums and offseason projects coming to an end, launch, haul, and recovery will be the focus at Landings Harbor dry storage. Weekend activities are in full tilt mode, with two weekends in a row topping more than 200 boat movements. Boaters, please use the BoatCloud App to make your vessel movements. With this tried-and-true method, launch activities were at an all-time high last year through use of the BoatCloud App. If you need to refresh your phone or mobile device with the BoatCloud app, please call the Marina’s Ship Store (912-598-1901), and we will be happy to assist you.
One of the many wonderful things about living on Skidaway Island is that we live in the middle of a wildlife sanctuary and can observe and interact with more than 200 varieties of birds and countless varieties of other wildlife. Where else can you observe a bald eagle while eating your breakfast cereal?
Do you know all the medications you take and what they’re treating? Most people we meet on emergency medical calls have no idea what they’re taking or why. It’s a crapshoot when we ask a spouse what their wife/husband is regularly taking. Please take the time to know your family members’ medical history so that you’re prepared for a medical crisis.
Savannah State University is looking for volunteer anglers to participate in an upcoming study that is aimed at developing a better understanding of what kind of oyster reef structure is best for catching our favorite sportfish.
Professor Matt Kenworthy and his graduate assistant Cameron Atkinson, have recently directed the placement of two oyster reef materials along the Skidaway River adjacent to a naturally formed oyster reef along a portion of the shore adjacent to the Skidaway State Park on Skidaway Island.
CCA Readies Second Year of Youth, Nature/Angling Program
Parents and youth leaders agree about the value of Skidaway youngsters not only spending time outdoors but also learning more about our island’s varied natural environment and our abundant fish and wildlife species. A great way to help achieve these goals is through the Skidaway Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association’s (CCA) youth nature and fishing program, Cast Away Club.
