Callawassie Island is part of South Carolina's Low Country. It is a sea island, protected from the Atlantic by the larger barrier island, Hilton Head Island. Callawassie Island is a gated community, surrounded by marshes teeming with shorebirds. Inland lagoons are inhabited by American alligators, bald eagles nest in residents' trees and wood storks can be seen on the golf course. The island's Ecology Committee led the efforts for certification and is responsible for many educational and community-wide efforts on behalf of wildlife.
