Graham Creek Nature Preserve

Graham Creek Nature Preserve welcomes visitors to explore its beautiful natural habitats, including pine savannas, bottomland wetlands, mixed forests and tidal marshes.

Walk Among Plants & Wildlife At Graham Creek Nature Preserve

Foley’s Graham Creek Nature Preserve is home to hundreds of plant and wildlife species, among almost 500 acres of natural habitats including pine savannas, bottomland wetlands, mixed forests and tidal marshes situated less than two miles from the Foley Beach Express.

Located at 23460 Wolf Bay Drive on Stan Mahoney Lane, the preserve offers a canoe/kayak launch with a two-mile paddle to Wolf Bay, five-mile hiking trail, 7.5-mile bicycling trail, 5K cross country trail, two-mile walking trail, 18 basket disc golf course, picnic areas, swings and bird watching areas.

Trails cross multiple habitats where visitors can see rare carnivorous plants and wildflowers year round. The park area also boasts large populations of wildlife and birds.

A new on-site amenity is the Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom and Learning Stations. These are play and learning areas that are incorporated into the educational programs for preschool through high school where environmental education is mixed with culture, history and imagination.

A stage area (with power) is offered near the outdoor classroom for large events. Soon, mountain biking trails will be completed off Philomene Holmes Boulevard on the southwest side of the Preserve.

An archery park has been added near the entrance.
