BHI Discoveries

Bald Head Island truly is a magical place! What's the best discovery you and your family have made while exploring BHI?

The recent rainy weather has brought out BHI's frogs & toads! On the island, we mostly have Southern Toads, Green Tree Frogs, Squirrel Tree Frogs, and Narrowmouth Toads. The wet environment is perfect for them to be out foraging or looking for mates.  Sometimes our amphibian friends like to cross the road, especially at night. If you see one in the road please try to safely avoid them or help them hop to the place they want to go!
