During the Colonial era, traveling between North Carolina and Virginia almost certainly required engagement with the Great Dismal Swamp, a million-acre natural wildlife habitat that remains a central part of the East Coast’s ecology today. A character in “Outlander” finds out firsthand the dangers of the thick wilderness during the American Revolution. But what is the history of this natural wonder and what is it like working with in it today?

Joining the episode is Chris Lowie, who has served as the manager of the Great Dismal Swamp Wildlife Refuge in Suffolk, Virginia for 17 years.

This podcast is sponsored by Durable Restoration Company and Fraser's Ridge Homecoming, presented by Outlander North Carolina.
