Wild In Dixie ...



“Land really is the best art.”
                          ~ Andy Warhol
                                           ~ 1928-1987

A beautiful autumn landscape paints the scene on a gorgeous October afternoon at Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge, a 4,053-acre national wildlife refuge located in Beaufort County, South Carolina, between the mainland and Hilton Head. 

Pinckney Island NWR, established December 4, 1975, was once included in the plantation of Major General Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, a prominent lawyer active in South Carolina politics from 1801-1815.
