Join Landscape Manager Eric Becker and local wildlife photographer Jerry Bridges on the grounds of Drayton Hall for a bird and wildlife walk around the 125-acre historic core of Drayton Hall’s landscape.
Drayton Hall’s unadulterated and conserved landscape includes the former rice ponds of the 18th century, the historic phosphate mining features and the reflecting ponds. Features in these locations serve as nesting areas, rookerys, and habitats for some of the Lowcountry’s most beautiful wildlife including Black Skimmers, Mississippi Kites, osprey, Anhinga, Great Blue Herons, and of course, our resident adult and juvenile alligators among others.
Come dressed for Lowcountry conditions: Lightweight, long sleeve shirts and pants are recommended as well as full shoes and socks. Please use sunscreen and insect repellent. Please bring water (available for purchase in the Shop and Cafe if you wish to buy it here). Be mindful of where you step and walk at your own risk.
This walk is $22 and includes your Grounds and Galleries Pass; we encourage you to see both after the Wildlife Walk. House tours can be added for $10 at the gate or shop when you arrive.
Walk meets in the breezeway at Hill Hall at 9:30 am on Saturday, August 10, 2019.
