Wings Over Beaufort - Hunting Island Boneyard Birding Tour - Sept. 21, 2023 @ 8:30 am
Adult - $25.00 + tax
Join Jenn Clementoni of Birding Beaufort for a guided birding tour! Hunting Island is South Carolina’s single most popular state park, attracting more than a million visitors a year, as well as a vast array of land and marine wildlife. Five miles of pristine South Carolina beaches, thousands of acres of marsh and maritime forest, a saltwater lagoon and ocean inlet are all part of the park’s natural allure. Hunting Island is home to the historic Hunting Island lighthouse, built in 1859 and rebuilt in 1875 after it was destroyed during the Civil War. A unique feature of the lighthouse is that it was constructed of interchangeable cast-iron sections so it could be dismantled should it ever need to be moved. Severe beach erosion made it necessary to relocate the lighthouse 1.3 miles inland in 1889. You fee includes a day pass to Hunting Island State Park.
