Type: Wildlife Refuge
Location: 88 Palmetto Bay Road, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928
Reviewed by: Drew Pawley
Experience: The Audubon Newhall Preserve is located on Palmetto Bay Road and is open sunrise to sunset. This 50 Acre tract of land was provided by Sea Pines founder Charles Frazer, and provides one more area of peace and tranquility to escape to as well. The preserve is home to many plants, which are thoughtfully labelled with signs for easy identification. One can either hike among the many marked trails, occasionally viewing different natural habitats or they can do some bird watching on the pond that lies in the very center of the preserve. Other habitats include pine flatlands, rare Pocosin (Indian word for bog) wetlands, and wooded areas. Be sure to pick up a guide pamphlet that contains a map in the parking lot. Here you’ll also have the opportunity to make a donation, leave comments, or even purchase a birdhouse to put up in the preserve for $30.
Thoughts: As with any wildlife area, I recommend taking bug spray to repel possible mosquitoes and ticks. It’s a great place to walk your dog (Yes! Dogs are allowed) or simply enjoy mother nature.
Recommend: Yes and No, go at your own risk.

If you want to make a little piece of The Island your own, you need more than just a road map and a REALTOR. You need a partner who can make things happen.
