Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge

US Highway 52 N, Wadesboro, North Carolina 28170




Description

Situated along the Pee Dee River, Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge contains 8443acre in Anson and Richmond Counties, North Carolina. The refuge was established to provide wintering habitat for migratory waterfowl.Cooperative farming in field impoundments, water level management, and the bottomland hardwood forest along Brown Creek provide excellent habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. Wintering waterfowl numbers fluctuate greatly, but can exceed 10,000 birds yearly. The refuge also supports a small population of wintering Southern James Bay Canada geese. Pee Dee Refuge is located a few hundred yards from the once famous "Lockhart Gaddy Wild Goose Refuge". In the 1950s, Gaddy's pond wintered more than 10,000 Canada geese a year. Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge was established in October 1963 to provide additional habitat for these geese and other waterfowl. Local numbers of wintering migratory geese have dwindled in recent years, but the refuge remains an important wintering area for the remaining geese and thousands of ducks.The refuge also supports an abundance of nesting neotropical migratory birds, bobwhite quail, wild turkey, and white-tailed deer. The diversity of habitat and management provides for more than 168 bird species, 49 reptiles and amphibians, 28 mammals, and 20 fish species. Refuge lands include the following habitat types: bottomland hardwood forest (3000acre), upland pine forest (1500acre), mixed pine/hardwood forest (2000acre), crop lands (1000acre), old fields, native warm season grass fields, and openings (1000acre).
