Nature & Science

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.

Because the Francis Marion and Sumter National Forests comprise lands from the coast to the mountains, a visitor has only to open her eyes to witness the wide variety of plants and wildlife thriving in the forests. We invite you to explore some of the diverse creatures, plants and flowers found within coastal South Carolina's Francis Marion National Forest, using the gallery links below.
