DONT FORGET THIS IS THE MORNING AFTER "FALL BACK"

A few of us have cameras on our persons constantly! A few more are more serious about photography than others - lets get together for a FUN nature trail and photo day (pics to be shared at a happy hour someday or as a group we could make a book sell it on AMAZON and give proceeds to the sanctuary, who would not want their name in THAT book! Paradise Members will be famous!)

Many visitors to the boardwalk enjoy wildlife viewing and nature photography, while others seek solitude on side spurs with benches amidst Corkscrew's ancient cathedral of bald cypress trees.

Visitors to Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary find a gentle, pristine wilderness that dates back more than 500 years. A 2.25 mile boardwalk meanders through pine flatwoods, wet prairie, around a marsh and finally into the largest old growth Bald Cypress forest in North America. These impressive trees, relatives of the redwood, tower 130 feet into the sky and have a girth of 25 feet. Their massive branches are draped with mosses, lichens, bromeliads and ferns.

The forest is also home to hundreds of alligators, otters, white-tailed deer and red-bellied turtles. A wide variety of wading birds, songbirds, raptors and the fabulous Painted Bunting can be seen throughout the year. Photo opportunities are available at every turn of the boardwalk trail.
