Attention:

We are thrilled to announce that Beidler's boardwalk is OPEN! Our new hours of operation are Thursdays, Fridays, and one Saturday each month 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 beidler@audubon.org 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 appreciated. 

For those who have visited the Center before, please be prepared for some changes when you return:

  • Online Registration: To reduce chances of Covid-19 spreading, we are limiting the number of visitors allowed on the boardwalk. Advanced registration is required, and no tickets will be sold on site. 
  • Hours: Our open days and hours have been limited to 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 until further notice. This means 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!

Silver Bluff's trails and grounds remain open from sunrise to sunset. 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 FacebookTwitter, 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!
