Lewis Ocean Bays Heritage Preserve

At least 20 Carolina bays are found on this 9,393-acre preserve, which provides habitat for Venus flytrap, yellow pitcher plants, native orchids, black bear, bald eagles, and red-cockaded woodpeckers. The visitor will find the most plant diversity along the ecotones at the edge of the bays. In this nutrient poor environment, some plant species survive by eating insects. Hunting is allowed.
