  • Jane Hurt Yarn

    Jane Hurt was born in Greenville, South Carolina on August 15, 1924, and raised in Scottsboro, Alabama, but the impact of her conservation efforts can be seen on the coast of Georgia, her adopted home state. Her work was vital to the protection of the barrier islands and marshes of Georgia, but also instrumental in national conservation legislature as well.
