Read the article Captain Sams Spit, Kiawah Island by Cecelia Dailey, composed in response to continued efforts of developers to build 50 houses on the 150-acre spit of sand. Under the tutelage of botanist Richard Porcher, Dailey challenges the current propaganda of developers who state that the beach is robust and accreting with substantial high land for development. Her photography and text show that the spit has a myriad of tidal lowland between dune ridges, especially important as habitat for migrating birds, and an eroding beach with no active dune building and beach plant communities. SCELP and the Coastal Conservation League have responded with enthusiasm to her fieldwork and new documentation of the volatile Captain Sams Spit.

Protect America’s coastal parks from detrimental uses

Tell the U.S. Senate to reject Senate Bill 2807 and stop the assault on America’s coastal national parks. We need to keep a science-based approach to protecting our lands and waters, not one that prioritizes politics and profits.
