CREW volunteer naturalist George Luther took a photo safari at Bird Rookery Swamp (BRS) on the 4th of July and reported an extraordinary number of Ruddy Daggerwing butterflies and many species of dragonflies. He also spotted deer, kites, and lots of other wildlife active on the trails. (See his photo gallery above)
The water levels are rising rapidly with the recent rains, which sheet flow into Bird Rookery from the CREW headwaters – the Corkscrew Marsh in the northeast – and through Audubon’s Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.
If you haven’t yet ventured to a CREW trail this summer, come visit. It is a remarkable time to be out in the woods, marshes, and swamps.

When the walk will be open again?
The trail is now open! Thank you for your support and patience.
I have been walking this trail for quite a few years and each time I go I love to see that more wildlife are making their home here. I’ve taken a number of really great shots(photos) here and thought you might like to see and or share some of these but I don’t know where I could send them. If you are interested please let me know
