Pea Island was named for the wild pea vine which grows in there abundance. (Note - spelled with an A)
The refuge was established in May 17, 1937. It has 5,834 acres of land, and 25,700 acres (Proclamation Boundary Waters) total and is located on the north end of Hatteras Island. The island with the refuge is pproximately 13 miles long (north to south) and ranges from a quarter mile to 1 mile wide (from east to west). This is one thing that we visited that was actually better at the time we were there.
I had told Bob I wanted to stop at Pea Island Wildlife Reserve, but he overshot it and had to come back. We went into the visitor's center and I talked to the ranger. She gave us a stamp for the Alligator River too, which we don't really deserve because we've only skirted the edges. I also got a map of that reserve. Both these reserves are administered by Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge as a part of complex; Alligator River Manager supervises the Mackay Island, Currituck, and Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge Manager
