Take a tour of the Port Royal Cypress Wetlands with Master Naturalist, Jill Moore. Jill, a certified master naturalist, and founder of Moore2Life, provides nature-based programs to local residents, communities and tourists here in the magnificent Lowcountry – a setting unlike any place on Earth. With research showing that people function best when they have access to and a connection with nature, Jill is committed to helping people discover a passion and appreciation for the unique area that surrounds us. 

While the tours are free to the public, we rely on the generosity of our donors to fund the expenses of our organization, which includes the services of our Master Naturalist. Donations are vital to the fulfillment of our mission, which is to support the cypress wetlands and rookery, increase community awareness through education, and advocate for maintaining the stormwater retention system as a working organic laboratory. To donate, you may visit the Donate page of our website, or bring the donation with you to the tour and leave it with the Master Naturalist. Thank you for your support.

Scroll down to our Events Calendar for dates and times of our upcoming tours.  Typically, tours are on the second Saturday and fourth Friday of every month. 

Meet Jill Moore


Jill Moore, owner and creator of Moore2Life, has a background in education as well as being a certified Naturalist. Her love of the outdoors started young while spending the summers of her youth in Montana, where her parents were raised. In search of a place full of outdoor adventure to raise her 3 boys, Jill’s family ended up in the Low Country of South Carolina. Sharing what she has learned and experienced in this area “like no other place on earth” is what she hopes to share with others through the opportunities she provides with Moore2Life.
