Cedar Island National Wildlife Refuge


This national wildlife refuge is noteworthy for its beauty and grandeur. The Monroe Gaskill Bridge rises high above the marsh, affording a view of low-lying Core Banks, which parallel the Byway and enclose Core Sound east of the Byway. The 14,480-acre refuge consists of approximately 11,000 acres of brackish marsh dominated by black needlerush and 3,480 acres of pocosin and woodland habitat. Boat ramps afford safe viewing locations. Open: dawn to dusk, year-round.
