SC Picture Project  |  Forests and Nature Preserves
From the mountains to the sea, South Carolina is home to acres upon acres of beautiful wild spaces. Experience nature among the old growth trees and untamed brush of the Palmetto State’s protected landscapes and wildlife refuges. There is a great deal of cultural history to be discovered within these sylvan escapes, as well. Below are a few places to discover and explore the next time you need a dose of fresh air and sunshine.
