Florida’s Everglades is considered one of the world’s natural wonders. It’s a 1.5-million-acre wetland that’s home to countless plant and animal species, including some that live nowhere else in the country. You may think that the Everglades is a one-of-a-kind unique place, but we’ve got our own mini Everglades in Georgia. At only 6,500 acres, the Bond Swamp is obviously much smaller than the massive Everglades, but it’s home to similarly beautiful scenery and boasts its own unique wildlife.

For more information about Bond Swamp National Wildlife Refuge near Macon, Georgia, check out the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service website.
