Abstract:
Knowing where to go and look gives nature lovers the opportunity to view endangered species in the wild. Weymouth Woods in the Sandhills is a good place to see red-cockaded woodpeckers. Viewing eagles in the Piedmont is best in the upper reaches of Jordan Lake in Chatham County. Red wolves and loggerhead sea turtles are more elusive, but the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge is best for wolves, while Hammock's Beach State Park is good for loggerheads.
