I very much enjoyed walking the half mile boardwalk at Port Royal’s Cypress Wetlands on May 12, 2021. It is such a neat place to visit in the center of downtown. In addition to alligators, the wetlands are home to a variety of birds: egrets, herons, anhinga, black birds, moorhens etc. It is quite amazing to see them sharing the same trees. I was surprised at the number of populated nests. I was in a photographer’s heaven!
A grant was secured in 1999 to restore the wetlands as a rookery to allow a safe location for nesting birds. Additionally, it provides a place for storm water runoff. It is magical, fun and educational. The restoration was very successful. I highly recommend you visit the wetlands with your camera whenever you find yourself in the area. It is indeed an experience not to be missed.
