News and Notes:

Please note that the Geology Museum is temporarily closed owing to severe damage from a frozen sprinkler pipe (please see the BCGM FaceBook page for photos). Several museum displays were destroyed and water damage to the ceiling, floors and display cases was extensive. If you would like to assist with our recovery efforts, you can do so by visiting this website and choosing GEMS: Geology Museum from the designation drop-down menu. Thank you for your support and check back for updates regarding our re-opening.

From a humble beginning as a camellia collection in the 1950s, the South Carolina Botanical Garden (SCBG) has blossomed into a 295-acre sanctuary for diversity by re-engaging people in the living world. We strive to serve as an interdisciplinary resource focusing on teaching, research, and outreach that advances awareness and understanding of plants, animals, minerals, and our culture.

The South Carolina Botanical Garden is a 295-acre garden and natural area that is a refuge for life. We exist for enjoyment and education and are available and accessible to all people. Our grounds are open and free-of- charge 365 days a year from sunrise to sunset.
