ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Explore South Carolina’s Lowcountry by kayak and on foot through salt marshes, swamps, river deltas and barrier beaches. Whether a beginner or intermediate birder, learn strategies for identification as you practice in the field. Some 250 species of interesting and rare birds can be found here, such as the Painted Bunting, Bald Eagle, American Oystercatcher, Anhinga and Wood Stork. Paddle into the Night Heron’s natural habitat, kayak through historic rice canals and walk into stands of longleaf pine to seek the Red-cockaded Woodpecker. Discover the beautiful Ernest F. Hollings ACE Basin National Wildlife Refuge and bird beneath draping Spanish moss.


Highlights

• Spot an array of species at the Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge as you go birding by kayak or on foot.
• Search for Grebes, Coots, Green Herons and more during a field trip to the Savannah River Wildlife Refuge.
• Paddle to the salt marsh for an opportunity to spot dolphins and learn about their role in local folklore.
