|All of LSSI is now under conservation easement!|

During my Labor Day visit to LSSI the Paulson family was wrapping up their holiday weekend visit and getting ready to fly back to Chicago. I can report that they were friendly and effusive about the opportunity to conserve the island, telling me that had always hoped for this outcome. My first ever visit to LSSI revealed that meals are served family style, and the Paulson family broke bread with other guests because that is simply the norm on this island, where Mother Nature is the focus.

Scott Greene is the General Manager at LSSI, a Select Registry Property which has garnered many accolades from the travel sector. “This island has been lovingly cared for over the last 100 years and it remains in a natural state,” said Greene. “This conservation easement guarantees that what is here now is going to become even more special in the future. We have a mosaic of habitat that includes a mature maritime forest, a sprawling spartina marsh and mud flats, plus seven-miles of untouched front beach.”
