It's always cool seeing dolphins at Roxbury Park, but what about when three pair come into the cove right next to the cottage to feed . . . and a Bald Eagle flies in to check things out. Now don't expect to see this on every visit, but you never know what you're going to see at Roxbury Park!

There will be a spectacular collection of butterflies gathering on the asters and swamp daisies starting around the 1st of October. This fall event will only last through the first week of Novemeber. Last year we had about 150 plants that attracted hundreds and hundreds of butterflies, and Monarchs every day for thirty straight days. This year there are over 3000 plants, and the butterfly sightings should be spectacular, with possibly dozens of Monarchs seen every day.
One of the things that makes this so special is not only the total numbers and varieties of butterflies, but how they sit still on the asters. This makes photographing them extremely easy. There is nothing like this anywhere else in the Lowcountry! Here are a few photos from last year!

ANNOUNCEMENT: Roxbury Park will re-open this weekend, October 29th-30th during normal park hours. There are still some trails that are not open to the public due to down trees or structural damage, so if you see an area taped off, please do not enter. We are working hard to restore the park, trails and boardwalks.
Please join us in welcoming Thomas Austin, the new Roxbury Park Caretaker. Thomas graduated from Clemson University with a BS in Science of Wildlife and Fisheries Biology. He has been a volunteer at Roxbury Park and is familiar with our past and on going projects. Thomas will be working at Roxbury Park part-time on the weekends, we are pleased he has agreed to join our team.
As a reminder, if the park is closed, please do not walk around the locked gate and enter the park.
