Pinckney Island NWR 


Programs & Accessibility

The Friends of the Savannah Coastal Wildlife Refuges was awarded a generous grant from Community Foundation of the Lowcountry for Pinckney Island NWR Visitor Programs & Accessibility.  The grant funds allowed the Friends to purchase equipment including a 15-seat electric shuttle, bicycles, binoculars, informational brochures, tables/chairs and improved signage. 

As a result of the grant and in partnership with the Savannah Coastal Refuges Complex, there is expanded programming for all visitors including the elderly, very young and mobility impaired. These services are offered without charge to the public.
