Promoting Excellence Through Research & Education

The Old-Growth Bottomland Forest Research and Education Center was established at Congaree National Park in 2002. Congaree National Park, in turn, protects over 26,000 acres of forested floodplains along the Congaree and Wateree rivers in central South Carolina, including 11,000 acres of old-growth forest.

The Old-Growth Bottomland Forest Research and Education Center works to integrate science into the visitor experience, park resource management, and educational outreach programs.
