DUE TO THE THREAT OF HURRICANE IRMA, THIS EVENT IS CANCELED
Old Santee Canal Park is teaming up with Audubon South Carolina to offer Guided Bird Walks. Join us for a leisurely walk around the swamp as we search for our resident and migratory feathered friends!
We will cover approximately 1 mile over well-graded gravel paths and boardwalk, with some minimal inclines and uneven surfaces. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Binoculars will be provided, but bring your own if able.
This walk is FREE (with paid park admission) and open to the public.
All ages and experience levels are invited. Please contact Adam Bedard or Kristin Threet for more information (843-899-5200).

Join with thousands of South Carolinians as they clear the beaches, rivers, lakes, marshes and swamps of aquatic debris. The cleanup, organized by the SC Sea Grant Consortium and the SC Dept. of Natural Resources takes place in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup coordinated by The Ocean Conservancy. Once the Sweep is over, The Ocean Conservancy tallies all the debris data. This data helps us to learn the sources of the litter so we can stop pollution before it starts.
Join with thousands of volunteers worldwide in this annual coastal and river clean-up. Results of the sweep will be sent to the Center for Marine Conservation to be included with data from all fifty states and many foreign countries that will be participating in the 32nd Annual International Coastal Clean-up day. We will be working out of canoes in Biggin Creek and the old canal and will clean along the banks of other areas. Bring a water bottle, dip net, gloves and a picnic lunch to enjoy in the park after the Sweep!
