Jennifer Berglund, Project Manager (she/her)

Project Manager Jennifer (Jennie) Berglund keeps the Company 1433 Project running by managing deadlines, connecting and communicating with project stakeholders, and monitoring the project’s progress. Outside of the Project, Jennie is a National Geographic Explorer and professional storyteller working in multiple media as a museum practitioner, writer, photographer and filmmaker. Formally trained as a scientist and a journalist, she gravitates to stories and projects that explore our human connections with nature. Her work has taken her around the world to all seven continents and deep into some of the world’s largest museum collections, namely those of Harvard University where she has developed dozens of exhibitions for four of their museums. Her work has appeared in numerous national and international publications, networks, and film festivals, including Discover Magazine, Scientific American, the Discovery Channel, and PBS.

Born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, she grew up exploring southern wildernesses, from the mountains to the caves to the coast. It’s in these spaces that she first developed her profound attachment to the natural world, one that she has carried throughout her life. Helping people and communities find their own connections to nature is a critical part of her work and is among the many aspects of the Company 1433 Project that excites her most.

The Okefenokee Swamp Park

The Okefenokee Swamp Park (OSP) opened its doors to the world at the northern entrance into the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge almost 75 years ago and has welcomed millions of visitors since that time.

Located mostly in Dixon Memorial State Forest south of Waycross, Georgia, the Okefenokee Swamp Park, is known for lily-decked water trails, with their reflective waters mirroring the overhanging beauty which lead to all points in this vast wilderness of islands, lakes, jungles, forest and prairies. The Okefenokee Swamp Park is a rare experience for every member of the family.  Extravagantly beautiful, the swamp, nearly a half million acres, carries you back into the world’s prehistory. Boat tours, available to book online or in-person, on original Indian waterways, wilderness walkways, Pioneer Island and native animals in their own habitat, all combine to weave a spell of pioneer American life.

The Okefenokee Swamp Park is a non-profit operating under a long-term lease and is not supported by federal or state funds.
