The Sea Pines Forest Preserve offers is a protected natural habitat for wildlife.
The Sea Pines Forest Preserve is a sanctuary for many animals. This time of year the Preserve is home many varieties of nesting birds. It’s a great time to observe hatchling nests of Night Herons, Great Blue Herons, Ospreys and many more species currently rearing their young!
The Sea Pines Forest Preserve currently hosts numerous coastal bird species that are in the child-rearing stage. Baby Ospreys have been hatched here for decades. It is not unordinary to hear young Osprey call to their parents for food and watch the parents tirelessly care for their young throughout the day.The Sea Pines Forest Preserve has a resident family of Osprey. They are exceptional parents, and successfully reared many babies.
Night Herons are also beginning to hatch.
Night Heron families interact amazingly with each other. There are typically around three young per nest, though we have seen more.
Finally, The Sea Pines Forest Preserve is host to Great Blue Heron nests.
These majestic, large birds are a true blessing to see. The tender moments between parents and their young within our bird families offer great photo opportunities for a unique memory. And the Preserve offers wonderful learning opportunities for families with children.
