    The Green Swamp is in Brunswick, Columbus counties in NC.

    Lauderdale,

    Green Swamp is one long drive from Charlotte.

    When you get a board trip together to head out that way, you should really plan to hit the swamp in the last week of May or first week of June after a winter burn. Having been there many many times I can tell you that is when it looks spectacular.

    And for those of you going soon I assume you know where the main site that the Nature Conservancy uses for show is, but as your are coming north on 211 about 4.8 miles from 17, on the left there is a nice area of very open flat woods. The ditch there is filled with S. rubra and various Utrics. And there are some very nice stands of S. flava and Pingcula lutea in the field. Don't feel bad if you miss it though, I have a hard time finding it my self.

    Also if you are brave enough to go exploring down some of the logging roads that go off to the left from 211, I have found some bodies of water slap full of U. inflata back in there. There are also some beautiful stands of atlantic white cedar in the area.

    I'm so jellous, I just love it up there.
