Maps & Directions

Historically roughly 1/3 of the state of South Carolina was covered with wetlands.  The vast majority of these wetlands were in the coastal plains.  As you left the immediate coastline, the wetlands were dominated by cypress swamps.  At the Coastal Discovery Museum with Robert Rommel you will examine the history of this great swamp and the biology of what makes the cypress tree so unique.  We will also discuss some of the dynamics of this unique ecosystem and the animals that make the cypress swamp their home.

Virtual viewing is $5 and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223.
