Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge

About Harris Neck NWR

The refuge's 2,824 acres encompass six man-made freshwater ponds, extensive salt marsh, open fields, forested wetlands, and mixed hardwood/pine forest. This diversity of habitat makes the refuge an important resource for migratory birds, which is why it was initially established in 1962.
