The 7,000 acre Bon Secour National Refuge is Alabama’s last remaining undisturbed coastal barrier habitat. Visit the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center for information on the flora and fauna, as well as ranger-led programs. Hiking trails examine different habitats; beaches and sand dunes, salt and freshwater marshes, scrub forests, fresh water swamps and uplands, or get a different perspective on a canoe or kayak. Wildlife lovers can observe alligators, a nesting area for Loggerhead, green, and Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles nest, and the endangered Alabama beach mouse, that can only be found in Alabama. Bring your binoculars to observe over 370-species of birds that reside or stop here during migration, or the Alabama state insect, the native Monarch butterfly. Entrance to the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge is free.
