From Advance, take Route C west 7 miles, take County Road 614 north 1 mile to Greenbrier, then Route W north 3 miles, and County Road 604 east for 0.75 mile then turn right (south) for 0.25 mile. The road dead ends at a private drive where the entrance to the area is on the left.
This area consists of restored wetlands, bottomland forest and swamp communities. Wetlands were restored through the Wetland Reserve Program (WRP) in cooperation with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).There is an elevated road crossing Dark Cypress which provides access to private property to the south and divides the area into two large main pools with open marsh and reforested areas.Each pool is bounded by low, broad levees and contains many manmade topographical features such as habitat mounds, meandering sloughs and shallow depressions. These features are designed to capture and retain receding flood waters from the Castor River Diversion Channel and provide diverse wetland habitats ranging from semi-permanent pools with exposed mud flats to higher sites which occasionaly are flooded for a few days at a time.
