Earth Day Nature Trail

Brunswick GA 31520

The Earth Day Nature Trail provides hikers with a view of Georgia’s outstanding coastal marshes and wildlife. Sea ox-eye, periwinkle, pricklypear cactus, wax myrtle, red cedar, and smooth cordgrass are the plants typically found along the trail. The best time for bird-watching is in the early morning or late afternoon, when the greatest numbers of birds are active. Wood storks and brown pelicans are just a few of the species that feed and live among the marshes. The Earth Day Nature Trail is located south of Brunswick on U.S. Highway 17. Turn left on Conservation Way, and follow the sign to the DNR Regional Headquarters – the trail entrance is located at the northeast end of the parking lot.

Dirt path with lumber borders, footbridges, and decks.

Diagrams to build bird houses may be obtained at the receptionist desk located in the main office building. Types include Wood Duck, Bat Box, American Kestrel, Screech Owl.
