Tourist in Your Town

This month, over 150 Charleston area residents have taken advantage of the "Be a Tourist in Your Own Town" passes and visited the Audubon Center at the Francis Beidler Forest. The pass allows the bearer free access, as is the case at FBF, or discounts to encourage local residents to explore places of interest in our area. Not only is it possible that these local residents will return once they have discovered the unique beauty of the virgin, old-growth forest, but they are likely to share their discovery with friends and neighbors, especially out-of-town guests looking for a memorable experience.

Few people that have learned about FBF (that's where you can help!) and have made the effort to visit have departed unsatisfied with their experience in the swamp. Hopefully, the peace and beauty of the swamp have created 150 excited storytellers and future supports of Audubon's efforts in Four Holes Swamp.
