Little Cumberland Island Georgia
The Board of Directors of Little Cumberland Island, Georgia (“LCI”) seeks candidates for the position of Operations Manager.

LCI is home to one of the oldest sea turtle nest monitoring projects in the world (initiated in 1964 by Dr. Jim Richardson and members of the LCI community). LCI is considered one of the least ecologically disturbed of the GA barrier islands.
