Event Details

This event finished on 25 September 2018


The Friends of the Savannah Coastal Wildlife Refuges offers free shuttle tours on Picnkney Island National Wildlife Refuge Tuesdays from 9:30-11 a.m.

The tour is an hour and a half in a 15-seat electric shuttle, taking guests from the parking lot to Ibis Pond and Starr Pond with commentary from a docent qualified as a Master Naturalist. There is an optional walk around Ibis Pond. Wildlife commonly observed on Pinckney Island include waterfowl, shorebirds, wading birds, raptors, neo-tropical migrants, white-tailed deer and American alligators, with large concentrations of white ibis, herons and egrets. Active rookeries of wading birds are a major draw during spring, and painted buntings and other passerines are the main attraction during summertime.
