Birding Walk with the Charleston Natural History Society at the Dill Sanctuary

The Charleston Museum’s Dill Sanctuary is a 580 acre wild preserve located along the Stono River that is home to a wide array of birdlife.  A six acre wildlife pond with three nesting islands attracts numerous wading birds, including threatened wood storks, while maintained fields, surrounded by woodland, provide habitat for songbirds, wild turkeys and raptors.  Join the Charleston Natural History Society, a local chapter of the National Audubon Society, for a guided tour of the Dill Sanctuary.  Learn more about the birdlife that call the Dill Sanctuary home or that are passing through during migration.

Suggested materials: binoculars, birding guide book/app, water, bug spray, hat and sunscreen. Please note, this is an “off-road” location with unprepared terrain. Closed toed shoes are required and walking shoes/boots are strongly recommended.

*The Dill Sanctuary is not open for daily visitation. The Museum offers programs throughout the year to provide public access to this protected property. The Dill Sanctuary is a wildlife preserve and pets are not permitted on the property.
