If you are unable to register for a walk on our boardwalk, consider visiting the new Grasslands-Woodland Trails near the entrance to the center! These trails allow visitors to experience our Longleaf Pine and grassland restoration sites in a safe and socially-distant way. No admissions or reservations are required, although online donations are always appreciated.
