Why You Should Visit
The Woodbury Tract Wildlife Management Area and Heritage Preserve, located in Marion County, is one of the largest habitat conservation purchases in State history. The property is thought to have been a place that Francis Marion (the Swamp Fox) used during his Revolutionary War campaigns. Also known as Brittons Neck, its location at the confluence of the Great Pee Dee and the Little Pee Dee rivers created a strategic thoroughfare for early Americans in the Pee Dee Region, and continues to draw visitors today. The property boasts an outstanding bottomland forest along the 27.5 miles of river frontage on the Great Pee Dee (a brown water system) and 11.5 miles on the Little Pee Dee (a black river system). Other habitats found at Woodbury include over a dozen Carolina Bays, a long sandy ridge supporting longleaf pine and loblolly pine forests, and other isolated wetlands. The forested wetland is home to the Kentucky warbler, Louisiana waterthrush, rusty blackbird, the swallow-tailed kite, and the Swainson’s warbler.
