Corkscrew swamp sanctuary

Your gateway to Western Everglades, the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary consists of about 13,000 acres of magnificent wetlands, pine flatwoods, a marsh, and a wet prairie, as well as the largest North American old growth Bald Cypress forest. Take a photo of these magnificent giants with 25-foot thick trunks that soar 130 feet into the clear Florida sky.   Take a walk along the meandering 2.25-mile boardwalk and look for some of the sanctuary’s inhabitants such as alligators, white-tailed deer, otters, red-bellied turtles, many kinds of wading birds, and songbirds, as well as raptors. You can also go on one of the guided tours to learn more about this rare habitat or attend a nature photography course to improve your skills.    375 Sanctuary Road West, Naples, Florida 34120, 239-348-9151
