$2 Million Donation Preserves Nanny Point For Park
by Lynda Lohr


     May 15, 2009 — Stellar views from the southeast reaches of V.I. National Park will be preserved once a 2.2-acre donation of oceanfront land by Maho Bay Camps owner Stanley Selengut is finalized. Selengut also owns Concordia Eco-tents and Studios, located near the donated land. The donated 2.2 acres are adjacent to the park boundaries.
      The donation, valued at $2 million, is being funneled through the Trust for Public Land, which will turn the land over to the national park.
      “The views from the point are simply stunning,” John Garrison, the Trust’s project manager in the Virgin Islands, said. “It was incredibly generous of Mr. Selengut to donate a site that could easily have been developed with high-end villas. We were thrilled to work with him to preserve this very special place.”
