This is a National Audubon Society Sanctuary that was mainly set up to protect and conserve the largest remaining stands of Bald cypress and Pond Cypress. These were continuously getting damaged in the continuous logging in the mid- 20th century.

This beautiful piece of nature is not very big but is definitely a true escape from the hustles of city. It is the Gateway Site for the Great Florida Birding Trail.

  • The main attraction of this sanctuary is the board walk. Along this you can walk over pine flat woods, wet prairies, pond cypress, bald cypress and marshy terrains.
  • You will find storks and other beautiful wetland birds over here.
  • Special species include limpkin, barred owl, swallow- tailed kite, American alligators and cotton mouth.
  • The visitor center of this sanctuary has a Living Machine demonstration site.

  • Great place to go and take an insightful walk within the swamps of South Western Florida. The walk is nice and easy, you get to see swamp flora, hear the wind through Cypress forest or even see a gator sunbathing. Nice souvenir shop at the entrance. It was still recovering from Irma when visited so the price was reduced.

  • One of my favorite places in the world. I have been there during many different months and it can be a totally different experience each time, but it is always relaxing. There is such a vast array of plants and animals. Go on a weekday, if possible, as there are fewer visitors. The night hikes are magical.

  • This place is amazing. It is so pure, so untouched (except for the very necessary boardwalk trail - gators are no joke). There are centuries-old trees, interactive signage, and scenes that look as if dinosaurs could come sloshing through the swamps. It's incredible and 100% worth a visit. PSA: bring bug repellant! Skeeters love swamps.

  • This is definitely a 5-star place to visit if you enjoy the outdoors. They got a terrific selection of birds, butterflies, alligators, etc. They have a wooden walkway to keep visitors out of the swamp and away from the wildlife. It is photographer's dream place to visit. Leave any noisy kids home.

  • I really enjoyed this walk! Excellent information posted throughout the trail, and fantastic views of some monster Cypress trees. A great spot for photographers, bird watchers, or anyone looking to experience some authentic Florida interaction. I would definitely bring friends back here! Oh, and the German woman from Arizona working the admissions and gift shop was super friendly, and helpful!!
