Audubon South Carolina

We protect birds and the places they need, right here in South Carolina


In order to protect the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers and visitors and to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we are closing Beidler Forest Audubon Center & Sanctuary until further notice. Our trails and outdoor areas there are also closed. We will continue to monitor the situation with direction from local, state and federal officials.

Until then, we encourage you to visit Silver Bluff Audubon Center & Sanctuary in Aiken. Our trails will be available, but our main facilities and restrooms will remain closed.

Silver Bluff's trails and grounds remain open from 9 am - 5 pm. We encourage you to come to visit our outdoor spaces and enjoy fresh air and nature—bring along your kids and walk the trails. It’s the beginning of migration season and our summer birds are returning. Look for Red-headed Woodpeckers, Cooper's Hawks, and Wood Storks!

As we all take responsibility to slow the spread of COVID-19 please remember to bring hand sanitizer, practice safe social distancing of 6-10 ft, and do NOT share binoculars.

Thank you for your ongoing support! We encourage you to continue visiting our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as well as our website for any updates. 

If you are stuck indoors and need a birdy-distraction, For the Love of Birds is a beautiful page filled with Audubon South Carolina’s favorite bird photos, videos, and stories!
