Morris Island

Morris Island , SC , United States

Just south of Charleston Harbor, tiny Morris Island is probably the last undeveloped spot on the South Carolina coast. The site of a Civil War battle (dramatized in the film Glory), the island will be put under permanent conservation easement this summer, the result of a successful public land trust campaign. Then, the habitat for osprey, blue herons, bald eagles, and two endangered species — the piping plover and the loggerhead sea turtle — will be preserved for hikers and bird-watchers for years to come.
