Silver Bluff Audubon Center & Sanctuary

Silver Bluff is a 3,400-acre wildlife sanctuary owned by the National Audubon Society. The site boasts a varied habitat of forests, fields, lakes, ponds and streams nestled along 2.6 miles of the Savannah River. Habitat and wildlife diversity make Silver Bluff a favorite destination for those interested in birds, wildflowers, photography, or simply a quiet walk. There is a wealth of history associated with the area including evidence of prehistoric Native Americans, visits by DeSoto in the 1540s and by William Bartram in the 1770s and ownership by SC Governor James H. Hammond in the 1800s. The wildlife habitat supports over 200 species of birds, including the threatened Wood Stork and Bald Eagles. Other wildlife such as deer, fox, alligator, armadillo and more also abound. Silver Bluff is a Discovery Stop along the SC National Heritage Corridor. An ongoing archaeological dig at Silver Bluff investigates the site of George Galphin's 18th-century trading post. Programs at the Center focus on environmental education and are targeted toward school groups and the general public. Nearly five miles of walking trails are available. No fee for the general public though donations are accepted.
