Corkscrew Hammock Day at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary - July 21, 2023

Enjoy opportunities to rest, relax, learn, and recreate in nature.

Come out on Corkscrew Hammock Day to explore the 2.25-mile long boardwalk that serves as the gateway to a gentle, pristine wilderness, with giant cypress trees over 500 years old.  Relax your body, mind, and soul as you immerse yourself in old Florida wilderness alongside the boardwalk, as it meanders through pine flatwood, wet prairie, marshes, and the largest old-growth bald cypress forest in North America. Keep your eyes peeled for the "Super" ghost orchid, alligators, otters, white-tailed deer, red-bellied turtles, and a wide variety of  blooming plants, wading birds, songbirds, and raptors.

Visitors can take advantage of the hammocks and rocking chairs placed around the Blair Audubon Visitor Center, as well as the hammocks and benches located along the shady boardwalk to relax.
