Beech Hill Pavilion at Savannah NWR (previously known as Kingfisher Discovery Center Project)

Discovering wonder in the natural world...

Friends of the Savannah Coastal Wildlife Refuges is pleased to announce that construction is nearly complete on the Beech Hill Pavilion at Savannah National Wildlife Refuge.  This project was originally know as the Kingfisher Discovery Center but was renamed in early 2019.   This free-standing classroom adjacent to the Visitor Center on the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge is located on US 17 halfway between Savannah and Hardeeville.   It will provide much-needed instructional space to bring local student and community groups into first-hand contact with the wildlife and wildlife habitat preserved by the Savannah NWR and managed by the US Fish & Wildlife Service.

We still need additional funding to equip and furnish the Pavilion, so your donations are still needed and greatly appreciated.  A big Friends group thanks to the IKEA Distribution Services Savannah in Port Wentworth which is our biggest community supporter, having donated $18,300.  

     The Friends is a tax-exempt 501(c) (3) charitable organization approved by the Internal Revenue Service to accept your tax-deductible donations of any size.  What better way to show your support for the Friends than to donate to this worthy project, or to make a gift donation in a loved one’s name?

Below are links to answers to your questions about the project.  Please direct any other questions or comments to webmaster@coastalrefuges.org.
