    Experience Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge

    Less than an hour south of Savannah off I-95, Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge stretches along nearly 3,000 acres of Coastal Georgia. Though the history of this land is contentious, it is beautiful. Sweetly low slung with old growth live oaks, palm trees, marshes and fresh water ponds, this stoic biological gem is relatively easy to navigate.

    Today, the refuge offers some of the region’s best opportunities for solitude, hiking, biking and bird watching.

    Originally home to Gaule indigenous people, they thrived here, fishing and hunting the coast for at least 500 years before the arrival of the French in 1562. A couple hundred years later, English and Scottish colonists quickly laid claim, cultivating it into a series of rice and cotton plantations that would last until the Civil War.
