Walterboro Wildlife Sanctuary

Located within the ACE Basin, the Walterboro Wildlife Sanctuary is a nature-based conservation area that combines history, culture, recreation, and education in a singularly southern lowlands setting. Wildlife is abundant with native populations of wild turkey, deer, raccoons, beaver, otter, mink, opossum, squirrels, fox, and wildcats. More than 80 species of birds have been observed here. The park’s four-mile network of boardwalks, hiking, biking and nature trails, provide visitors vantage points for observing the diversity of wildlife inhabiting the black water bottomland. The more than 600-acre sanctuary, which may be the only “braided creek” swamp accessible to the public, is centrally located about an hour from Hilton Head, Savannah, Columbia, and Charleston, off of Interstate-95. The Sanctuary’s Washington Street entrance is located only steps from Walterboro’s main historic district.
