Check out our rockstar team! This week our Environmental Conservation Corps was invited to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens to set up wood duck boxes throughout the property with Wetlands Ecologist James Wilson.

Nesting habitats for these native duck species are becoming more rare with the loss of the older mature trees containing nest cavities in which they typically will raise young. Our AmeriCorps Members learned the importance of creating nesting habitat, how to provide the best conditions that would encourage wood ducks to nest and why predator guards are needed to be attached to ward off snakes and raccoons from eating the eggs.

The rain cleared just in time for the sweetest proposal at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens with Harrison and Esther - she said YES!!! From the rose petals and fizzy champagne to the sparkly ring and iconic white bridge, it was an absolute dream! Go check out their special day on the blog today, and see what colorful animal photobombed their session!! 😍

Another year of fantastic calendar models and Lady Nora Sweetheart, our January, 2022 calendar model got the job done! So majestically, we might add. Nora's giving us positive vibes and the breath of fresh air we need to ring in 2022. Wish Lady Nora Sweetheart a belated birthday on her Instagram.

Be sure to pick your 2022 calendar up at your local pet store/groomer or order on our website while you still can! All proceeds go to the rescuing of deserving animals.

Southern Vintage Photography took these amazing shots of angelic dog model, Lady Nora, at the breathtaking Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Where you can take your pups to enjoy for yourself any day.

I photographed my first destination wedding in Charleston in 2017. I had one day to myself, so I decided to spend 8 hours admiring Magnolia Plantation and Gardens - it's one of my favorite places in the world! When I think of serenity, I think of their live oaks covered in Spanish moss 😊

Today, I brought my hubby to share in my happy place 😍

Magnolia Plantation and Gardens is a historic rice plantation, a stunning 19th-century Romantic-style garden, and a site of remarkable natural diversity and beauty!

Come see why Travel and Leisure called Magnolia "One of America's Most Beautiful Gardens." Unlike most of America's gardens, which are formal and seek to control nature, Magnolia's Romantic-style Gardens cooperate with nature to create a tranquil landscape like Eden where humanity and nature are in harmony. Founded in 1676 by the Drayton family, Magnolia Plantation has survived the centuries and w

Everyone meet "Smackers"👋🐾 #magnoliamoments

This loveable little guy is a 5-month-old Opposum who was rescued and raised by the organization, Keeper of the Wild. When his mother was hit by a car, Smackers and his seven siblings were still in the pouch and were about the size of a baby mouse! Keeper of the Wild found and nurtured them so they could grow into healthy adults! Smackers will be used for education programs, as he is friendly and handleable. Smackers can be found at his permanent residence, the Zoo & Nature Center at Magnolia!
