Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge, established in 1975, has 4,053 acres. From salt marshes to forestland, Pinckney is home to a wide variety of land types as well as an even wider diversity of bird and plant life. While Pinckney is the largest island in the refuge, and the only one open to public use, Corn Island, Big and Little Harry Islands, and Buzzard Island also make up this South Carolina refuge.
