Audubon South Carolina always has something exciting going on, from the daily boardwalk tours and monthly nightwalks at Beidler Forest, to trail rides and stork-watching at Silver Bluff. Check back to this event list often, because we sometimes have a great birding opportunity come up unexpectedly - like our outing to Allendale where we watched over a hundred Swallow-tailed Kites soar overhead and dive for a breakfast of June bugs.

Anyone can participate, from beginning bird watchers to experts. It takes as little as 15 minutes. It’s free, fun, and easy—and it helps the birds.
