This is nothing short of an absolutely magnificent garden. There are landscaped spaces, history exhibits, a native wildlife zoo, and the premier collection of American figurative sculpture showcasing more than 2000 works from more than 400 artists. And that’s just a start. There are boat rides, back-road overland excursions, butterfly house, and special exhibits that are offered for a fee in addition to Garden admission. Art and nature join hands in this place; that was the goal of founders Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington.

The Lowcountry History and Wildlife Preserve’s thousands of acres have evidence of
the great rice plantations of the 1800s and the Lowcountry’s native plants and animals. Explore the Lowcountry Center, walk the Lowcountry Trail, or take a guided tour by land or water. Don’t miss the Labyrinth on the Trail Beyond the Garden Wall.

The Native Wildlife Zoo is the only accredited zoo on the coast of North and South Carolina. The otters and owls alone are worth a visit. These Zoo residents were either raised in captivity at an accredited institution or obtained from a wildlife rehabilitation center after sustaining a disability. Put differently, these animals could not survive in the wild.

Brookgreen is handicapped accessible. No pets are allowed for their safety and the safety of our zoo collection. Child and adult strollers are available on a complimentary, first-come basis. Please visit Brookgreen’s website and consult Lowcountry’s Heritage Sites and Calendar of Events for more information than we have room to share here.
