An 88-acre private beachfront development has been proposed for Cumberland Island National Seashore, the country’s largest and wildest barrier island. A developer plans to build at least 10 large houses adjacent to Cumberland Island’s visitor center and campground.
This increased development is a threat to the purposes of National Seashore and will interfere with the visitor experience.
Wild Cumberland hopes to stop the development with legal action. But time is running out. We need to file litigation in the next few months in order to stop the bulldozers.
If this private upscale subdivision in the middle of a national park is allowed to proceed, an additional 900 acres of private land within Cumberland Island National Seashore may also be developed.
As an all-volunteer federal 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Wild Cumberland will use 100% of the funds for direct legal action to stop the development.
