Green Swamp Preserve In Brunswick County, North Carolina

If you find yourself driving on Highway 17 near Supply, North Carolina (in Brunswick County) – why not take a few mile detour to the Green Swamp Preserve? According to the Nature Conservancy website:

A parking area for the Green Swamp Preserve is located 5.5 miles north of Supply on NC 211. Please note that the trails into the Green Swamp are very primitive. The trails in the longleaf pine savannas have recently been overrun with foot traffic, damaging the fragile ecosystem. Part of the Green Swamp is open to hunting through the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission’s Game Land program.

This is the location where David Attenborough filmed venus flytraps for his documentary “The Private Life of Plants“.
