Education and Outreach

As Glynn County is a fishing community, guidelines for safe consumption of our oceans’ harvest are in the public health interest of everyone. Knowledge of safe harvestable species, as well as locations of safe harvesting areas, is essential to the health of our families and maintenance of a healthy commercial fishing industry.  For over since 1998, the Glynn Environmental Coalition has served as a resource for providing this vital information to our community. See all the resources distributed by this program below.

 

Goal: Raise awareness for the seafood consumption advisories in Glynn County and mitigate health risks, especially for women and children, associated over-consumption of contaminated seafood.

Each year the Glynn Environmental Coalition attends the Regional Science and Engineering Fair hosted by Savannah State University and presents the Dr. William T. Lipscomb Scholarship Awards. The awards, sponsored by Pinova and Georgia Power, are presented to the students whose science projects best epitomize concern and hope for a clean environment and healthy economy for coastal Georgia. 

 

Dr. William T. Lipscomb served a professor of Biology teaching Anatomy and Physiology at the Brunswick College (now known as the Coastal College of Georgia) until his retirement and then served as the Glynn Environmental Coalition Secretary until his passing in 2005. Bill was an advocate for the Glynn Environmental Coalition recognizing and supporting our outstanding middle and high school students, teachers, and parents.  A science fair award was established in his memory after he passed away. This year, 2019, will be the fourteenth year the award is presented by the Glynn Environmental Coalition.
