Springer’s Point Memorial
Unique Places to Save was successful in raising over $17,000 to create an interpretive trail, signage and seating area highlighting the rare Georgia Sunrose plants at Springer’s Point Preserve on Ocracoke Island, owned and managed by the North Carolina Coastal Land Trust. The 120-acree Springer’s Point Preserve, celebrating its 10th anniversary, is the only location in the Outer Banks where this tiny, ground-hugging plant with exquisitely lovely yellow flowers can be found. The sensitive natural area in which the Georgia Sunrose population grows is truly special and worthy of further protection and enhancement.
The Ocracoke Observer published a great story on this project in their September 2, 2017 edition: https://ocracokeobserver.com/2017/09/02/springers-point-benches-places-to-rest-and-to-remember-those-whove-passed/
We would like to thank the North Carolina Coastal Land Trust for doing the work to establish this memorial in partnership with us.
