Kanuga’s track record of thoughtful environmental stewardship adds credibility and momentum to the board’s aspirations for bold leadership in this field. Kanuga will undoubtedly have a lot to teach us in coming years.

In our throw-away world, Kanuga is a treasure well worth preserving. We must protect the special feeling of being at Kanuga.
Bryan M. Haltermann, real estate developer, Augusta, GA
My family loves Kanuga! I want my son to have a feeling of exciting reunion as our Guest Period comes closer. The best gift of the experience is the recapturing of a simpler, richer lifestyle when people chat with each other face to face. Thank you for knowing the value of shared time and space and preserving it in this crazy world.
