St. Simons Island Guale Preserve

The Susie King Taylor Women's Institute and Ecology Center is honored to have worked closely with the design consultants at St Simons Land Trust on their new Guale Preserve trail kiosks.

Our executive director, Hermina Glass-Hill, assisted with providing an artistic rendering of Susie King Taylor as well as content on the use of local plants used by Native American and Gullah Geechee people as natural remedies for pain and general ailments.

This certainly helps the Institute to fulfill its mission to ground Susie's story and Gullah Geechee cultural heritage to the natural ecology of maritime forests on the Georgia coast.

We are very happy to see our Geechee Heroine of Freedom, Susie King Taylor, displayed so prominently throughout the trails at Guale Preserve! 173 years later she is still relevant!
