We are currently working with Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve on Georgia’s coast to better communicate the amazing work they do to understand the long-term dynamics of coastal and estuarine ecosystems and how humans interact with those systems. Have you ever visited Sapelo Island or the Reserve’s Visitor Center? If so, we would love to hear from you about your experience here.
In March 2019 we launched Heirloom Stories to provide client-focused, professional, and confidential services for preserving your life story and family histories for future generations at a reasonable cost.
