The Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge is located in NC’s Inner Banks on the Albemarle-Pamlico Peninsula in Hyde, Tyrrell, and Washington Counties. It includes the12, 350-acre Pungo Lake Unit of Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. And the pocosin supports one of the densest populations of American black bear reported anywhere in the scientific literature. The bears may be seen but are much more active in the warmer weather. We’re planning a spring outing for the bears.

But, come & stay as long as you like. Due to Covid-19 concerns, we have prepared an attached comprehensive guide that people can use to do this outing on their own or with a buddy. Make sure you register so we can share a list of members who will be in the area.

What: A weekend of photo opportunities; including Tundra Swans, Snow Geese, Red-winged black birds, river otters, bears, Sandhill cranes, bald eagles [all have been spotted in the past week]. There’s a full moon on Monday night. Plus some great scenic shots from various points.
