Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge Remains Open

Pinckney Island NWR remains open during normal hours, sunrise to sunset, 7 days a week.

The health and safety of our visitors and employees is our number one priority. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with the federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

We urge our visitors to do their part when visiting the refuge to follow CDC guidance to prevent the spread of infectuous diseases by maintaining a safe distance between yourself and other groups; washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze; and most importantly, staying home if you feel sick.

Updates about the Service's response to coronavirus will be posted at For the latest updates on any of the Savannah Coastal Refuges, please follow us on Facebook or give us a call at (843) 784-9911.
