Celebrating our Coastal Leaders

One Hundred Miles 100:

Individuals and Businesses Making a Difference for Georgia's Coast

The One Hundred Miles 100 recognizes individuals and organizations for their diverse efforts to preserve and protect Georgia’s extraordinary 100-mile coastline.

For our second annual list, we are thrilled to celebrate untold stories of coastal champions of all walks of life, each doing their part to make our coast a better place. Through their actions, their words, their votes, and their voices, these advocates show steadfast commitment to protecting and preserving our 100 miles. Some demonstrate their concern in the lab or on our beaches, maritime forests, rivers, and oceans; others make their contribution in classrooms, office buildings, elected office, neighborhoods, or even online. They are young and old, well-known and yet to be discovered. For their many contributions to the coast we love, we owe them a debt of gratitude.

This year we received a record number of nominations. From your nominations, OHM has selected 50 initial honorees (see below). Each of these honorees will pay tribute to someone who has inspired their work or made an impact on our coast. Collectively, these stories will make up our second annual OHM100. We will honor the full list at our Choosing to Lead conference on Saturday, January 13, 2018, along with an expanded description for each honoree on our website.
