The Hilton Head Island Audubon Society owns and operates the Audubon Newhall Preserve located on Palmetto Bay Road on Hilton Head Island. It is open to the public at no charge from dawn to dusk daily.
The Audubon Newhall Preserve is a series of short, easy walking interconnected trails through a fifty-acre nature preserve. An information and trail guide, available at the entrance, will guide you through the area, where you will see a wide variety of trees and plants, from Florida Scrub to native hardwoods. A feature of the preserve is a rare pocosin (the Indian word for bog), which was once a characteristic feature of barrier islands.
