Pine Island promises to be a unique experience of the wildness of Currituck Sound and its unparalleled marshes, maritime forests, birds, and other wildlife.
The Audubon sanctuary is part of the Currituck Marshes-Pine Island Important Bird Area, which is made up of an extensive system of marshes, creeks, channels and open water.
