Palmetto Point Nature Preserve

Location: Brantley and Camden Counties, Georgia

Given to STPAL in 2014. Acreage: 755

Palmetto Point is wooded and is generally bounded by equally wooded land on all sides  The Property is in the northern portion of King’s Bay.  It originally was composed of bay swamp and a small amount of drier ground on the eastern and western fringe and in the small ridges in the middle. This is one of many large, swampy depressions throughout this region.   Many are bounded by NE/SW trending sand ridges left by old ocean terraces formed as the Atlantic Ocean changed over time. It is home to a host of feral hogs, alligators and reptiles. Its best use as pubic benefit is yet to be determined given its unique characteristics.
