Historic Mitchelville Freedom Park Observation Deck
Hilton Head Island South Carolina
South Carolina has more salt marsh than any other state in the eastern United States Being a natural habitat for many coastal creatures. It is also an essential part of the world’s ecosystem.
Here is the information board showing the animals that live in the marsh.
During low tide you can see the crabs crawling around and oyster shells on the surface.
The periwinkle is a kind of snail that stays close to the cordgrass that it can cling to if an enemy approaches.
To get a closer look at the marsh birds, the scenic viewer is a big help
They are free to roam as they please 🙂
Hope all are doing well, and I hope you are enjoying my photos of the beautiful coastal areas of Georgia and South Carolina
