Waterways, Live Oaks & Wildlife
The slow-moving waterways of Johns Island are home to thriving populations of birds, plants, fish and wildlife. In addition to countless natural ponds and waterways, our recreational lake and canal system provides some of the best ways for your family to experience the natural beauty of Briar’s Creek. Spend a peaceful afternoon at our South Carolina resort kayaking beneath the sprawling canopy of our ancient Grand Oaks. Or enjoy sunset fishing from your private dock, and haul in one of our trophy-class largemouth bass.
As South Carolina’s first Certified Silver Audubon Signature Sanctuary, Briar’s Creek is home to American Bald Eagles, Wood Storks, White Ibis and other rare native and migrating birds. From our specially designed course management and maintenance facilities to specially built shelters and water features, every aspect of Briar’s Creek is designed to support and enhance this incredible wetlands ecosystem.
From the planning stages of Briar’s Creek on John’s Island, our resort has collaborated with Audubon International to develop Briar’s Creek as an environmentally friendly, natural sanctuary.
