Callawassie Island

Okatie, SC

City or Town

Population: 800


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.

The Island celebrated Earth Day with a garden tool and pot swap. Most items found new homes with the remainders donated to Habitat for Humanity. The NWF Spring magazine Issue on "50 Years of Garden for Wildlife" was given out to all participants.
