Leadership Southeast Georgia Launches 2020 Program in Glynn County with Study of Natural Resources
By: Carriage Trade PR
The leadership program draws together business and civic influencers from throughout Georgia's 10-county coastal region to offer an in-depth look at the region's challenges and assets. Members of the class also benefit from networking opportunities designed to boost collaboration and cooperation throughout the region.
Heard Galis, one of two principals at Galis/Stewart Insurance in Brunswick's Historic District, was the session coordinator for the first of the five weekends. He graduated from the LSEGA program in 2017.
The session began with a shrimp boat excursion in the waters off Brunswick. Led by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) staff, participants received a first-hand look at the fruits of Georgia's traditional shrimp industry, as well as the barriers it faces. The class learned about the many ways our Georgia coastline is unique from the nationally recognized conservation efforts to the biology itself. Professionals at DNR also reviewed critical issues facing the region's beloved coast and explored solutions such as rainwater capture, living shorelines and habitat restoration.
That afternoon, the group traveled by ferry to Little St. Simons Island, where the remainder of the three-day session was held. The class spent this time on the island between classroom sessions and outdoor activities that included a natural resources scavenger hunt.
This session was supported by sponsorships from Coastal Outdoor Adventures, Galis/Stewart Insurance, J H Parker Company, Inc. and Pinova. The 2020 program is proudly sponsored by Evans General Contractors;
