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:

I hope to get back down there soon!
