Guided Tours

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.

Tour Cost

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.

Senior (age 65+) or College Group$10 per person

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.
