Afterwards, the building will be open for visitors, with the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism following state and federal guidelines for limited capacity inside the building and social distancing.

On July 20, 2016, the park’s nature center was engulfed in flames in the early-morning hours after being struck by lightning.

About two dozen animals were killed in the fire.
