At A Glance


From creature feedings to nature hikes, we’ve got exciting events for the whole family to enjoy.


We are centrally located in Beaufort County, where S.C. 170 crosses the Chechessee River. Just take the right exit from either direction at the bridge.

Field Trips

Fun for all ages, field trips enhance students’ classroom curriculum and gives them a unique understanding of our coastal environment.


Truly the heart of our Foundation, volunteering is the perfect way to learn more about what makes the Sound so important to us.
