Wingswood Society Membership
Wingswood is the name given to the 152 acre Lowcountry setting of the Avian Conservation Center/Center for Birds of Prey. The name evokes connotations of flight and forest and celebrates the soaring vision of the new Center. Blessed with pine forests, live oak allée, hardwoods, wetlands, fields and lakes, Wingswood is the essential, natural foundation upon which the Center will be built.
Wingswood Society members are our most engaged supporters and the leading advocates of the educational, scientific and conservation mission of the Center for Birds of Prey. Their generous support is in the tradition of naturalists that came before and a testament to the ethic of conservation that will preserve the quality of life for generations to follow. Wingswood Society memberships can be issued to an individual, family, business or corporate entity and come with a variety of added benefits.

Wingswood Society - A Community of Conservationists
South Carolina has a long tradition of studying and conserving a rich
diversity of flora and fauna and the ecosystems that support them. From
our earliest days, we have played willing host to the era’s leading
naturalists and artists: Catesby, Audubon, and Bachmann are a few of the
best known. In the last century, our labors have been joined by a
broader public. A conservation ethic has developed within the community
with a strong belief in the preservation of the region’s land, estuaries
The mission of the Avian Conservation Center/Center for Birds of Prey grows out of this ethic. That mission is to identify and address vital environmental issues by providing medical care to injured birds of prey, educational programming, research, and conservation initiatives.
