The Springfield Legacy Foundation (SLF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit partnership of four environmental, cultural, and historic institutions dedicated to research, conservation, and education along Georgia’s coast. Partners include Georgia Sea Grant, the University of Georgia School of Forestry and Natural Resources, Seabrook Village Foundation, and the Archaeology Institute of the University of West Florida. SLF seeks to demonstrate humanity’s interrelationship with the landscape while protecting important resources in the North Newport and Medway River basins of coastal Georgia. The radical design of the Foundation enables the land, essentially, to own itself. It will be shared with the public through responsible and innovative use guided by the complementary stewards on its diverse board of directors. The goal of the Springfield Legacy Foundation is to connect people with nature in an educational and exhilarating way.
