Experience Nature, Art and History at Brookgreen Gardens—Monday, June 27

Brookgreen Gardens is the floral jewel of South Carolina's coast. Located north of Charleston and south of Myrtle Beach on South Carolina's Hammock Coast, the 9,127-acre property preserves this historic site's natural and cultivated landscape.

Brookgreen Gardens melds art, nature, and history. Since its founding in 1931, by Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington, Brookgreen has been a cultural center for the community.

Recognized as one of America’s premier gardens, it is one of a few select places in the United States to have earned accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums as well as being designated a National Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The SC Association of Veterinarians, the sponsors of the Southeast Veterinary Conference, has arranged for motorcoach transportation from the Myrtle Beach Marriott to Brookgreen Garden starting at 4:00 pm on Monday, June 27. Upon arrival to the gardens, we’ll go on a guided walking tour learning the about the sculptures as well as the native gardens. Dinner will be provided in the Pavillon. Then, we’ll go on a guided creek excursion where we’ll cruise the creeks on a 48-foot pontoon boat. We’ll pass historic rice fields, now home to alligators, waterfowl and osprey where we’ll see the distinctive landscape of the rice plantations and shaping of the history of the Lowcountry.

The motorcoach will depart the gardens at 9:00 pm

The cost for this all-inclusive event is $75/adult and $35/children. Attendees may opt to drive their vehicles to the Brookgreen. There is no parkingfee.
