The Green Swamp is a swamp that lies in Brunswick and Columbus counties in North Carolina. The carnivorous plant known as the Venus Flytrap is found within this swamp. North Carolina laws prohibit the removal of these plants from their habitat. The swamp was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1974.[1]
