Restoration. Education. Recreation.

Our Mission

Welcome to Kennedy Pond Conservancy! We’re on a mission to restore and protect this 315-acre Carolina Bay freshwater wetland, creating a space where everyone can connect with nature. Through education, research, and recreation, we’re dedicated to preserving the pond and supporting the local community. Join us in bringing positive change to Bulloch County by learning about wetland conservation, wildlife management, and more through our diverse programs and events. Let’s work together to improve our natural world so the beauty of nature can be experienced for generations to come, creating a deep connection between people and nature.


By restoring Kennedy Pond’s natural features like water levels, connections, and wildlife homes, we aim to keep this important place in Bulloch County thriving. This area is special because it has diverse ecosystems including open water, marsh, shrub bog, cypress forest, tupelo swamp and longleaf. With some care, we can turn Kennedy Pond into a rich landscape, providing a home for many different plants and animals. Join us in protecting and enhancing this unique natural spot!


Kennedy Pond Conservancy has opportunities for community outreach through its educational programs including research clinics, graduate studies, workshops, weekly educational seminars, volunteer programs, science fairs and other education related projects. We provide expert trainers, guides, instructors, and guest speakers to promote not only the restoration of Kennedy Pond but the importance of nature conservation efforts as a whole.


Enjoy your time outdoors by getting involved in our outdoor adventure programs, tree plantings, habitat restoration, nature camps, guided nature walks, boating excursions and environmental workshops. Our guided educational wetland tours provide a firsthand experience of wetland habitats, their beauty, and purpose. From picnics to primitive camping, kayaking and hiking there is fun for the whole family.
