Announcing the first in a NEW series of unique audio tours, the Naturally Kiawah Pathways: Central Island tour utilizes Kiawah Island’s existing bicycle path network as a guide to the central portion of the Island. On the tour you will encounter many unique environments, including expanses of tidal salt marsh, maritime forests and freshwater wetlands. Along the way you will have the opportunity to view a variety of wildlife, especially birds, and learn more about Kiawah’s local ecology. Historical information is also presented within the tour, as you will be guided to several locations associated with the Island’s plantation-era days.

As you follow the tour and learn more about Kiawah, please keep in mind that enjoying this pristine environment is not for us alone. Plant and animal life only thrive in a balanced ecosystem. The Kiawah Conservancy works to preserve this delicate balance that provides haven for our native flora, habitat for wildlife and the opportunity for residents and guests to enjoy the natural wonders this special place affords.

Come learn about our coastal sharks and rays from Dr. Gavin Naylor, a researcher at the Medical University of South Carolina and Professor of Biology at the College of Charleston. Dr. Naylor focuses on studying the evolution and distributions of sharks and rays across the globe using comparative genomic technology. He has found that we have some very unique and poorly known deep water sharks and rays off the coast of South Carolina. Join us at the Sandcastle, Kiawah Island at 10:00AM on December 10 and learn all about them!
