As part of the Skidaway Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association’s (CCA) overall effort to help ensure quality fishing in the 151 lagoons in The Landings, a group of eight CCA volunteers recently spent two days seining selected lagoons to help quantify the success of fish hatches of key species.
This year, 30 lagoons, including five brackish lagoons, were seined.

The beauty of The Landings and Skidaway Island has been known to inspire many artists, and resident Philip Viviani is no different. He penned the poem below and decided to share it in honor of our 50th Anniversary.
Other than bulldozing a road to get there, the Marsh Tower was among the first things Branigar built back in 1972 when The Landings opened for sales.
There were two marketing reasons for this. First, Romerly Marsh was the only “amenity” actually in place to show sales prospects. Buyers today see a mature community, with homes, clubhouses, golf courses, Marinas, and a Village Center laid out before them.
Back in the early 70s, prospects were standing in a dense, empty forest and it was left to the sales agent to create a “vision” of the future strong enough to motivate a purchase commitment.
Standing atop the tower, mesmerized by the beauty of the surrounding marsh and river, was an ideal “pitch point” to spin this story.
