St. Catherines Island stands apart from the other ecologically and culturally significant barrier islands on the Georgia coast. While it shares a diverse mix of ecological and cultural resources, it is widely known and valued for its globally significant archaeological sites and its history of research, education, and conservation. It is also unique in that the island is privately owned, with the St. Catherines Island and the Edward J. Noble Foundations (SCIF, EJNF) supporting the conservation of the Island’s resources and the extensive research and education, all for the public good.
