Check Local Listings

The new phone books are here. The Audubon Center at the Francis Beidler Forest is featured on the cover of the Real Yellow Pages. Although the phone number for the center cannot be found in the white pages section of the listing, the phone number (843.462.2150) can be found on the first page in the "About the Cover" text box.

The images shown on the cover are (from left to right) an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus) on a a Leucothoe (Leucothoe racemosa), Indian Pink (Spigelia marilandica), and Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis). The Leucothoe shown is growing next to the platform to the right as you approach Goodson Lake at the end of the boardwalk. The other two flowers are not visible from the boardwalk, but apparently were easier to blend together on the cover than the other flora and fauna images submitted.

The Francis Beidler Forest is also highlighted in a 3rd grade textbook: South Carolina Science, Macmillan/McGraw-Hill, 2008 edition.

Hopefully, this exposure will help folks discover the unique gem hidden in Four Holes Swamp. However, if you have experienced the beauty of the Francis Beidler Forest firsthand, please help us spread the word!
