Boneyard Forest

Do you like a good mystery? From the Nicklaus Clubhouse parking lot, follow the cart path leading to the Par-3 Course. Now, gaze across the wide tideland to the west. Notice standing skeletons of weathered red cedar trees: nature’s Boneyard. A favorite nesting site for bald eagles, the trees remain like the bones of a lowland forest that somehow perished many decades ago. Perhaps this once was a freshwater impoundment used for rice cultivation or duck hunting, and it was breached and flooded by saltwater in a hurricane. What’s your guess?
