A 2.25-mile raised boardwalk takes visitors through several distinct habitats found within the 14,000-acre Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, including the largest remaining virgin bald cypress forest in North America.

This natural system is managed by the National Audubon Society to maintain the native plants and animals found here and to preserve the natural processes that have been occurring for thousands of years.

This photo tour will introduce you to each of the habitats along the boardwalk -- pine flatwood, wet prairie, pond cypress, marsh, lettuce lakes, and bald cypress forest -- and give you a small sampling of some of the sights you might see along the way.

The aerial photo below provides you with a view of the boardwalk area and an overlay of the boardwalk path. If this photo tour piques your interest, please visit us the next time you are in Southwest Florida.
