August 3, 2017 GMT

If you are a nature lover, you need to look no further than Birds & Butterflies to get your fix.

Located at 117 Laurens St. S.W., the shop opened in downtown Aiken, SC in 1997 by owners Ron and Dori Brenneman. Ron is a Certified Wildlife Biologist who worked for 25 years for Clemson University, International Paper Company and the National Wild Turkey Federation.

They sell everything you need for feeding and watching wild birds including quality wild bird feed, feeders, pole systems, baffles, nest boxes, binoculars, bird baths, books and much more.

Birds & Butterflies is not your average gift shop. It celebrates all things nature and wildlife, too.

From May to October, Birds & Butterflies hosts its annual Nature Series of field trips and seminars. Space is limited for seminars and the number of participants for field trips also is limited, so reservations are required. They can be made by calling 803-649-7999.

“The purpose of Birds & Butterflies seminars and field trips are to foster the love and appreciation of the natural things God has created for our enjoyment,” said Ron Brenneman.
