Experience the South in a new way

The seaboard of Georgia and South Carolina harbors a wealth of wildlife habitats and a fascinating cultural heritage. Here, the Sea Islands hug the mainland, offering undulating dunes, meadows, marshes, and forests that teem with birdlife and other creatures, as well as an intricate web of waterways that beg to be explored. Discover these stunning wilderness areas with our naturalists, and delve into the complex history of the South in charming coastal cities and on barrier islands where the West African-influenced culture of the Gullah-Geechee people continues today. 

  • Kayak in salt marshes and coastal lagoons rich with wildlife including American alligators and dolphins.

  • Get acquainted with the fascinating Gullah-Geechee culture of the Sea Islands, a blend of West African and English languages and traditions developed by enslaved people in the 18th-century.

  • Meet researchers at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island; and enjoy excellent spring birding, watching for roseate spoonbills, wood storks, and tricolored herons and up to 20 species of migrant warblers.

  • Experience the historic city centers of the south on walking tours through Brunswick, Savannah, and Charleston.
