 *The SHIRLEY M. LEWIS AWARD, presented to the club or group of clubs that accomplish the most in the ENVIRONMENTAL FIELD is given with a certificate and a precious little bird statue. In the first years of this club’s existence, the members initiated efforts for litter control within the community and on the busy thoroughfare leading to their island. For more than 20 years, club members have committed to the Adopt-A-Highway program sponsored by the Georgia Department of Transportation, monthly filling 25 or more bags with trash picked up along the three mile causeway. With initiative by this club and assistance of the Garden Club of Georgia, in 2005 this community was the first in the state designated as a wildlife habitat by the DNR.

They have spearheaded a native plant trail to encourage residents to select native specimen plants and in conjunction with the Skidaway Audubon Society have worked in planting and expanding a 3-acre area as a gathering spot for many species of birds, butterflies and insects. With funds raised by the successful annual sale of Christmas bows, they give financial assistance to Arbor Day projects, plantings at the community library, a butterfly garden at the Skidaway State Park, the Savannah Tree Foundation, the Bamboo Farm and Coastal Garden as well as a new community garden named Skidaway Farms. Keep up your good work, Landings Garden Club!
