Brookgreen Gardens & Zoo

In 1931, Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington founded Brookgreen Gardens, a non-profit 501(c)(3) garden museum, to preserve the native flora and fauna and display objects of art within that natural setting. Today, Brookgreen Gardens is a National Historic Landmark with the most significant collection of figurative sculpture in an outdoor setting by American artists in the world and has the only zoo accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums on the coast of the Carolinas.

At Brookgreen Gardens there are special events that take place throughout the year. If you would like to receive monthly e-news of these events, please click here.

The Lowcountry Zoo has been an important element of the mission for Brookgreen Gardens since its inception. It is the only zoo accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) on the coast of North and South Carolina. The AZA is America’s most respected organization for zoos and aquariums and accredits only those institutions that have achieved rigorous standards for animal care, education, wildlife conservation and science. All of the native animals in the Lowcountry Zoo were either bred and raised in captivity at an AZA accredited institution or were obtained from a wildlife rehabilitation center after sustaining a major disability due to injury. In either case, these animals could not survive in the wild.
