ACE Basin Bird Watching

ACE Basin Bird Watching | Coastal, SC

Bird the ACE

Bird the ACE!  Offering some of the best bird watching in South Carolina, the ACE Basin includes more than 50,000 acres of public lands, providing a huge variety of birding opportunities. With planted pine, managed wetlands, a maritime forest and beach, among others, more than 265 species of resident and migrant birds visit or live here.

You’ll find a number of access points in Bear Island and Donnelley Wildlife Management areas, or the ACE Basin National Wildlife Refuge, Edisto Nature Trail, Edisto Beach and Hunting Island State Parks, and others.

Hint: Bring a spotting scope. You’ll need it and it will definitely enhance your birding experience.

WOW Factor: Bear Island welcomes several pairs of nesting Bald Eagles during the winter. An observation platform gets you a bit closer, and miles of dikes for walking put you in the middle of everything. Call first to ensure accessibility.

Located: ACE Basin in Green Pond, SC 29446
