This refuge is located on an abandoned World War II Army airfield. Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge has over 2800 acres of saltwater marsh, grassland, and deciduous woods. These habitats support an amazing array of birds: songbirds, birds of prey, wading birds, and waterfowl. We can expect to find wintering sparrows, ducks, and maybe a few warblers. There should also be a variety of waders. We will bird from the car with short hikes at stops like Woody Pond. Bring snacks/lunch and drinks; sun screen, bug spray, binoculars, spotting scopes, and photography gear.

Directions: Take I-95 north to exit #67 in Georgia (US17). It is approximately a 1.5hr drive from Jacksonville, depending on where you live. Go east, right at the exit. The McDonald’s is immediately on the left with a Shell gas station. If you want to meet us at the refuge; continue east/south on US17. Look for signs for the refuge and “The Smallest Church in America” on your left. The refuge road is just past the church. No fee.

Location Meeting Place: 7:30am, McDonald’s at I-95 Georgia exit 67.
