MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to support the cypress wetlands and rookery, increase community awareness through education, and advocate for maintaining this stormwater retention system as a working organic laboratory.

THE FRIENDS OF PORT ROYAL CYPRESS WETLANDS WELCOME YOU TO DISCOVER THE SITES, SOUNDS AND WONDERMENT OF THE WETLANDS AND ROOKERY IN PORT ROYAL, SOUTH CAROLINA

When you drive south on Paris Avenue, look to the left and you will see the entrance to the Port Royal Cypress Wetlands.  Its sweeping views of the wetlands and a dedicated wooden amphitheater and boardwalk invite you to begin your exploration.

If you have not yet visited, plan on beginning with an hour to slowly stroll the 0.56 miles of trails around the Rookery and read the informational signage regarding the many varieties of wildlife found at the wetlands. Stop and listen to the sounds of the many species of birds as they soar about the skies. Be prepared to hear the laughter of children when they see an alligator for the first time. Become part of the magic and bring your camera to treasure the sights.
