Walterboro’s Newest Attraction… the Walterboro Wildlife Center

The much-anticipated Walterboro Wildlife Center opened recently to much excitement. The center is in the heart of downtown Walterboro.

The Walterboro Wildlife Center is an interpretive exhibit hall showcasing the plant and animal life that is present in the Walterboro Wildlife Sanctuary and throughout the Lowcountry.

The historic building was beautifully re-purposed into a 7,000 square foot discovery center. The floor is painted to resemble the braided system of the creeks that intertwine in the Walterboro Wildlife Sanctuary.

Specimens of native Colleton County wildlife are on display in aquariums throughout the center. The Wildlife Center will feature snakes, turtles, frogs, fish and alligators! A large meeting space is available in the back of the center for special events.

On opening day, the center featured birds of prey from Lowcountry Raptors and reptiles from Edisto Serpentarium. Similar programs and demonstrations will be scheduled throughout the year.

The Walterboro Wildlife Center also offers information on other nature-based attractions within a 100-mile radius.

The center is located at 100 S Jefferies Blvd, in downtown Walterboro. Hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
