Brookgreen Gardens

At Brookgreen Gardens, school field trip groups will learn about more than just the impressive collection of perennials, trees, vines, and shrubs the garden displays. Students receive one-of-a-kind educational enrichment with programs about Nature, Art, and History. Located on a former rice plantation with sculptures and exhibits of Native American and Gullah artifacts, Brookgreen is a Lowcountry History & Wildlife Preserve. In the Native Wildlife Zoo, students and scouts can see alligators, bald eagles, river otters, and learn about historic rare breeds that differ from the hybrid version of them that they may have seen today, such as the dominque chicken, marsh tacky horse, and mule.
