This site, aptly named for its spectacular live oaks situated along Old Fort Bayou, is owned and operated by The Land Trust of the Mississippi Coastal Plain. It is open from dawn to dusk. Three walking trails wind through southern mixed hardwood forest and skirt a bayhead swamp and tidal marsh. An observation deck overlooks the bayou. This site is surveyed on a regular basis by a team from the Mississippi Coast Audubon Society who report that it a good place to observe migrants and that Clapper Rail and an occasional Least Bittern can be found in the marsh.
