Welcome to Our New Website!

“To stand at the edge of the sea, to sense the ebb and flow of the tides, to feel the breath of a mist moving over a great salt marsh, to watch the flight of shore birds that have swept up and down the surf lines of the continents for untold thousands of years, to see the running of the old eels and the young shad to the sea, is to have knowledge of things that are as nearly eternal as any earthly life can be.”

-Rachel Carson

Welcome to our new website. If you’ve ever been on or around a marsh island like Mordecai Island, the words by Rachel Carson above resonate and, with the knowledge that the future of the ebb and flow of the tides of our salt marsh lies in our hands, Mordecai Land Trust’s mission statement of island preservation, protection and restoration becomes clear.

We have built our website for easy navigation. We hope you will visit the Critical Habitats, scroll through the Featured Species, click on the Mordecai Island Projects, read the History under Resources, look up how to Volunteer, and view the photographs and videos in the Media section. We’ll keep you up to date on our fundraisers, on our island monitoring and projects, give you a voice on our Contact page, and opportunities to visit the island by becoming a member. We also hope you’ll take advantage of the links to agencies and partnerships moving along the bottom of the site.

We’re excited to add the new mordecailandtrust.org to our Facebook and Instagram media family. The result of months of work by members of the Mordecai Land Trust  and our local Long Beach Island web designer, William Seddon, our intention is that the site is where you will find in-depth information about Mordecai Island and you can browse a little to learn a few things about the island you didn’t know before. The idea is to use the website as a resource for education and research, or just for enjoyment.

Most of all, after you have browsed through the pages, we hope you will appreciate the wondrous diversity of life that thrives in the marsh and the front-line work that the Trust is doing to save it. 

With best regards,

Linda L. Colgan,

President, Mordecai Land Trust
