Nature's Theater

The Saluda Shoals Foundation is currently focused on raising funds to support the construction of Nature's Theater at Saluda Shoals Park, the upcoming premier outdoor performance venue in the Midlands of South Carolina. Once realized, it will become a catalyst for creating a greater appreciation for the performing arts, a reconnection with the natural environment, and an economic spur for the local and greater community. 

Make a donation to the Saluda Shoals Foundation and become a part of Saluda Shoals Park’s exciting future. Your investment will enhance the quality of life for your family and for citizens throughout the Midlands by providing cultural opportunities, environmental education and an outdoor recreational venue for people of all ages.
