Audubon Center At Francis Beidler Forest

The National Audubon Society's Francis Beidler Forest in Four Holes Swamp contains within its 18,000+ 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 millennia. A 1.75 mile self-guided boardwalk trail (handicapped accessible) allows visitors the chance to safely venture deep into the heart of the swamp...to see it the way nature intended! Canoe trips and naturalist-guided walks and programs also are available seasonally and by reservation.
