Come experience the largest area of privately protected land on James Island, The Charleston Museum’s Dill Sanctuary! On October 8, the Museum invites the community to tour this precious landscape to learn more about the rich historic and natural features located within this 580-acre wildlife preserve. Museum staff will be on hand to discuss recent accomplishments at the Sanctuary including preservation of the Civil War batteries, archaeological research, as well as natural resource management. Attendees can take guided tours, hear special presentations on the history and ecology of the property, hike to the wildlife pond, and participate in educational children’s activities, all while enjoying the natural environment of this Lowcountry treasure. This is an “off-road” location with unprepared terrain. Walking shoes/boots, sun protection and water are strongly recommended. PLEASE NOTE: The Dill Sanctuary is not open for daily visitation. The Museum offers programs throughout the year to provide public access to this special property. The Dill Sanctuary is a wildlife preserve so pets are not permitted on the property. This event is FREE and open to the public. Registration is encouraged. Suggested donation $10.
