Morris Island

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 has been put under permanent conservation easement.  The result of a successful public land trust campaign. The habitat for osprey, blue herons, bald eagles, and two endangered species — the piping plover and the loggerhead sea turtle — preserved for hikers and bird-watchers for years to come.
