BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – An educational kiosk about Bird Island will be on display in Sunset Beach later this month.
According to the Bird Island Preservation Society, the kiosk will tell visitors, “If you walk approximately 1.2 miles west down the beach, you will reach Bird Island, which stretches 1.4 miles, crossing the South Carolina state line and ending at Little River inlet.”
The Town of Sunset Beach provided a location for the kiosk in the gazebo parking area on Sunset Beach Island.
“We hope visitors and residents alike will visit the kiosk and take that walk,” said BIPS Chair Bill Ducker.
Bird Island is the only remaining undeveloped barrier island system in the county. According to the preservation society, it is one of the few protected natural island areas in the mid-Atlantic region.
The kiosk will be on display March 22 at 11:00 a.m.
