Dear Beidler Forest Audubon Center and Audubon South Carolina supporters:
We are thrilled to announce that Beidler's boardwalk is reopen! Our new hours of operation will be Thursdays and Fridays, 9AM-1PM. Spaces are limited, and must be reserved online in advance. Visit our Beidler Boardwalk Pre-registration page to plan your visit today!
If you are a Beidler annual pass-holder and would like to make a reservation, please reach out to staff at email@example.com or call the visitor center at (843) 462-2150.
If you are unable to register for a walk on our boardwalk, consider visiting the new Grasslands-Woodland Trails near the entrance to the center! These trails allow visitors to experience our Longleaf Pine and grassland restoration sites in a safe and socially-distant way. No admissions or reservations are required, although online donations are always welcome.
As the boardwalk reopens, please be prepared for some changes:
- Online Registration: To reduce chances of Covid-19 spreading, we are limiting the number of visitors allowed on the boardwalk. Advanced registration will be required, and no tickets will be sold on site.
- Hours: Our open days and hours will be greatly reduced. Currently, we will only be open Thursdays and Fridays, 9AM-1PM. We encourage you to arrive no later than 11AM to have plenty of time to enjoy our 1.75 mile boardwalk.
- Visitor Center Closure: The visitor center will remain closed for the foreseeable future. This means there will be no access to indoor restrooms, water fountains, snacks, and merchandise. A handicap accessible portable toilet will be available for visitor use.
- Masks & Social Distancing: When checking-in and passing other visitors on the boardwalk, visitors are asked to wear a mask. Please keep at least six feet apart from employees and other visitors (outside of your group) at all times.
Beidler staff and volunteers look forward to your visit. Get your tickets!
