Congaree Swamp is Growing!
I just found out that 2,300+ acres were added to Congaree National Park (near Columbia, SC) last November. I’m glad to hear it; it is a beautiful place, one I enjoy visiting any time of the year.
I couldn’t find a map of the new boundaries, but according to that article, some of it now borders Bates Old River, an oxbow to the east of the park.
A few more links time I’ve spent in the park:
- A summer photo trip
- My photos in The State
- A few paddling trips on the Cedar Creek: One, Two, Three
- Some bug photos from the Congaree, several of which are mine
- A photo of the trees from my first trip to the park back in 1999
