Discover Nature Program Myrtle Beach State Park
Even in the middle of the vast development of the Grand Strand, Myrtle Beach State Park remains an oasis of green where visitors can learn to appreciate the importance of our natural coastal resources. Through exploration, hands-on activities and personal experiences, students learn about these resources, the importance of protecting them and the need for their continued existence in highly-developed areas.
