Audubon Center At Francis Beidler Forest

336 Sanctuary RD
Harleyville, SC 29448


The National Audubon Society's Francis Beidler Forest in Four Holes Swamp contains within its 17,000 acres, the largest remaining stand of virgin Bald Cypress/Tupelo Gum swamp forest left anywhere in the world. One thousand year-old trees and native wildlife abound in this pristine sanctuary that has been untouched for a millennia. A 1.75 mile self-guided boardwalk trail (handicapped accessible) allows visitors the chance to safely venture deep into the heart of the see it the way nature intended! Canoe trips and naturalist-guided walks and programs also are available seasonally and by reservation.
