Happy Friday y’all!

Charleston is one of the many wonderful cities that are featured on an EA Tours’ educational tour. With the perfect mix of Southern hospitality and rich history, Charleston is the perfect place to visit if you’re looking to stay State-side for your student tour.

After exploring the cobblestone streets, students and teachers are always eager to venture outside the city for a plantation or swamp tour. This is where the Audubon Swamp Garden comes into play.

A few years ago, when I was still at university, I visited this majestic “garden” to do a little research for my environmental class. From the first moment I stepped onto the wooden bridge pathway I knew I was somewhere truly unique! What with its distinctive trees growing right up out of the water to its miniature islands and the abundant wildlife going about their secret lives, the Audubon Swamp Garden is a great place for science students to discover the diverse ecology.

The swamp boasts an incredible amount of plant and animal species that are almost unequalled anywhere else in America. The flora and fauna coexist among the Southern Cypress and Tupelo Gum trees which provide a quiet breeze. Students and teachers can explore this otherwise inaccessible landscape on boardwalks and bridges.

I hope this photo encourages you to book your educational student tour with EA Tours to Charleston or at least to get out an explore nature. You never know what precious gems may be right in your neck of the woods.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Kate.
