Help preserve, protect and keep St. John, St. John. This is a non-profit 501-c3 organization dedicated to the protection of land of important historic and natural beauty. St. John is threatened with the destruction of its natural habitat, cultural resources and the loss of public access. SJLC has been successful in acquiring two parcels of land:

  • 3.6 acres at Haulover on the East End. This unspoiled beach front property fronting both the north and south bays were slated for condominium development. The history, culture and life they sustain are now saved.
  • 1.1 acres on the easternmost tip of Lovango Cay. This beautiful land with high visibility from St. John’s North Shore and Sir Francis Drake’s Channel has now been preserved for future generations.

All proceeds will go to St. John Land Conservancy. www.@stjohnlandconservancy.org
