Swanquarter National Wildlife Refuge

Swanquarter’s isolated swamp and marsh land is home to a variety of animals, including Black Bears, American Alligators, Brown Pelicans, Bald Eagles, Ospreys, and many types of ducks and other waterbirds. The best way to explore this beautiful refuge is by boat, by which many of the waterfowl that winter here -- including blue-billed Ruddy Ducks, scaup, Buffleheads, Redheads, and Canvasbacks -- can be seen. There is also a two-mile-long gravel road through the refuge uplands that affords good birding opportunites, as well as a thousand-foot-long pier into the marshland.
