Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge
The site consists of a variety of habitat types along the Yadkin-Pee Dee River. Freshwater wetlands are found throughout and include small creeks, five ponds, one lake, two moist soil units, six impoundments and one green-tree reservoir. Uplands including mixed deciduous forests, upland pine forests, old fields and farmland are found throughout. Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1965 “for use as an inviolate sanctuary, or for any other management purpose for migratory birds.” It is located adjacent to the famous “Lockhart Daddy Wild Goose Refuge” that provided sanctuary to over 15,000 Canada Geese during the ’40′s, ’50′s and ’60′s.
