Hunting Island Nature Center

The Hunting Island Nature Center nurtures the child in us all. “What’s that?” “Why?” “How?” Find answers to these questions and more. Discover the wonders of nature on a barrier island, as the Nature Center has live animals and exhibits that delve into the diverse habitats of Hunting Island State Park. Enjoy public programs seven days a week from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and Tuesday through Saturday, March to November. Join a park naturalist as we search for life in the water and under the sand and amaze you with stories of the ocean's creatures. Tackle life in the Lowcountry with our skills-based programs. Kayak with us in our tidal lagoon each Friday from March through November. And don’t miss loggerhead sea turtle nesting season, as first nesting mothers, then emerging hatchlings, captivate visitors from May through October. Call the Nature Center for specific program schedules and information.
