Walterboro Wildlife Center

Now OPEN!
The Walterboro Wildlife Center features the rich story and native wildlife of the state's largest city park, The Walterboro Wildlife Sanctuary.  Come learn about the wonderful history, environmental significance, and wildlife in the heart of Historic Downtown Walterboro.

The Wildlife Center is also Walterboro's newest and best event venue.  It boasts both a large multi-purpose event hall and a beautiful Amphitheater that, together, can host an exciting array of events, from concerts to weddings and parties.

City Council took a monumental step in preserving South Carolina's rich natural heritage and history when it initiated plans for the Walterboro Wildlife Sanctuary. In the first phase of development, an elaborate woodland trail system was constructed allowing visitors to traverse the hardwood forest and numerous "braided creeks" that flow through the Sanctuary. The second phase included the restoration of a section of the first overland route from Charleston to Savannah running through the heart of the Sanctuary. Originally constructed by Indian tribes and later used by colonists, the old Stagecoach Road was instrumental in the development of the coastal region. 

Tying it all together is the Walterboro Wildlife Center, an interpretive exhibition hall where visitors will learn about the important role swamps play in the Lowcountry and the habitat they create for numerous species of plants and animals. Displays offer information on other nature-based attractions within a 100-mile radius.
