Youmans Pond (daily, free) is a prime stop for migratory fowl. Its main claim to fame is being visited in 1773 by the great naturalist William Bartram on one of his treks across the Southeast. Youmans Pond has changed little since then, with its tree-studded pond and oodles of owls, ospreys, herons, egrets, wood storks, and many more.
To get there, take I-95 south from Savannah  to Exit 76. Take a left onto GA 38 (Islands Highway) and then a left onto Camp Viking Road. About a mile ahead take a right onto Pamira Road. About three-quarters of a mile ahead look for the pond on your right. It’s unmarked but there’s a wooden boardwalk.
