Harris Neck NWR was established in 1962 by transfer of federal lands formerly managed by the Federal Aviation Administration as a WWII Army airfield. Located in McIntosh County, Georgia, the refuge serves as an important link in the chain of refuges along the Atlantic seaboard, and is the inland base for two neighboring barrier island refuges, Blackbeard Island and Wolf Island refuges, both located southeast of Harris Neck.

Harris Neck's 2,762 acres consists of saltwater marsh, grassland, mixed deciduous woods, and cropland. Because of this great variety in habitat, many different species of birds are attracted to the refuge throughout the year. In the summer, thousands of egrets and herons nest in the swamps, while in the winter, large concentrations of ducks (especially mallards, gadwall and teal) gather in the marshland and freshwater pools.

Over 15 miles of paved roads and trails provide the visitor easy access to the many different habitats. Chosen for it's accessibility and bird diversity, Harris Neck is one of 18 sites forming the Colonial Coast Birding Trail, inaugurated in 2000.

May 3 Bird Photography by Bob
In the spring Harris Neck is a bird photographers dream. Lots of waders at the rookery and constantly flying overhead. Plenty of migratory warblers and other small birds as well.
October 20 Peaceful by Suzy
You can bike or roller blade this pretty easily. The old landing strip is kinda rough and has cactus. if you hike you can see cool ruins of a kiln, a fountain and an old pool. Lots of birds and armidillos too.
