One of the most intimate ways to experience Beidler Forest is to take a staff naturalist with you on the boardwalk. Our naturalists know the intricacies and tiny miracles of life that make the forest such a magical place.
Also, our naturalists can tailor their presentations to suit your group's interests. Whether you’re an educator planning a field trip or a private group wanting to experience the forest on a deeper level, please give us a call and we’ll do our best to address the topics of your choice.
Reserve in Advance
Please call in advance to schedule any guided tour. We’re here at (843) 462-2150 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Educators, especially, should call long in advance. Our calendar fills up fast during the academic year.
The cost of a guided tour depends on the type of group (see below). No matter what type of group, you must be willing to pay for a minimum of 10 people. If you have fewer than 10 people, we’ll still charge for 10.
|Adult Group (ages 13-64)||$12 per person|
|Senior (age 65+) or College Group||$10 per person|
|School Group, with Guided Activity||$7 per person||(classroom teachers free with student group)|
|School Group, without Guided Activity||$5 per person||(classroom teachers free with student group)|
Over the years we’ve developed some exciting guided activities and lesson plans for both elementary and high school students. They're all compliant with state standards. Again, please give us a call so that our naturalists can address your group’s needs.
