Cornerstone SRI

March 14 - 17 at Kiawah Island in South Carolina

Location - Kiawah Island

Kiawah Island is a 10-mile-long beach-ridge barrier island located in Charleston County. Captain Sams Inlet to the west separates Kiawah from Seabrook Island. Stono Inlet, the eastern boundary, provides the divide between Folly and Kiawah. The island is comprised of parallel rows of massive dunes which formed during about 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. The more seaward dune formation dates back 4,000 to 5,000 years ago. Kiawah is one of the most stable islands in South Carolina, although the ends of the island are somewhat dynamic due their proximity to inlets. Beach profile changes on the eastern half have historically been more dramatic than changes seen along the western half of the island.

Kiawah was purchased in the mid-1970s by the Kuwait Investment Company and Sea Pines Company, which conducted several pre-development studies to assess the island's ecological resources and create a development plan. Special ecosystems and large segments of the island were designated to remain pristine. Ownership has changed several times since the original plans were designed and more of the island is currently under development.
