I drove over from Athens (about 1 1/2 hours) for my first visit to Phinizy Swamp and I wasn't disappointed. I spent about 2 hours walking around with my camera photographing birds, butterflies, dragonflies, and snakes. I also saw rabbits, deer, and an armadillo. A great place!

I really enjoy walking through Phinizy Swamp. You are actually in the swamp but don't worry, they have a bridge that you use to walk through. You can see birds, turtle and fish and occasionally deer. Very nice and peaceful place.

This is a great adventure for people of all ages, groups of all ages. I have been there on many occasions and loved it each time. The presentations are accurate and informative. You can't read about this stuff in a book and have the same experience!

Very small attraction but it is a great learning opportunity about the local waters and the clean-up and monitoring projects.
