“In Every Walk with Nature, One Receives Far More than He Seeks.” John Muir
Make sure that you check the Cypress Preserve's
website (greenvillecypresspreserve.org) for the
Cypress Preserve Nature Trail Guide before you
begin your walk through the Cypress Preserve.
As emphasized by John Muir in the introductory
quote above, our trail guide will enhance your
understanding and enjoyment of the preserve by
providing you with a self-guided tour as you
journey along the half-mile trail which circumscribes
its outer perimeter. Your path will take you through
such topographic features as meadows, bottomland
hardwood forests, and cypress brakes.
Along the way, you will be guided by numbered informational signs at numerous stopping points, each of which is indicated in the trail guide. We recommend that visitors first read each informational sign, then read the corresponding information in the trail guide, authored by Lynn Cox and Lynn-Libous Bailey. In this manner, visitors can acquire greater insight into such ancient wetland ecosystems which are rapidly disappearing from the landscape. Tours are available for groups upon request.
