Newhall Preserve Remains Open
During these stressful times, it is important for many of us to maintain our connection with nature. We would like to remind you that the Audubon Newhall Preserve remains open, the birds are singing and the plants and nature trails are in top condition for spring.
If you choose to visit the preserve, you are urged to maintain social distancing guidelines and avoid groups of more than three. Please bring hand sanitizer, consider facial protection and remember not to share binoculars. Consult https://www.hiltonheadislandsc.gov for the latest local public health advisories.
Although the preserve remains open, guided tours and the Tuesday morning bird walks have been suspended due to COVID-19 precautions. We hope to start these walks again in the fall. Stay tuned for more information.
The Audubon Newhall Preserve was established in 1965 when Caroline “Beany” Newhall recognized the need to protect native plants from the path of development. She convinced Charles Fraser — who shared her love for the environment — to set aside the land for the preserve. Over the years, Newhall spent many hours transplanting plants to this protected environment, and she left an endowment to ensure the preserve’s upkeep.
