Looking for things to do on Bald Head Island?  The BHI Conservancy uses its unique location to foster appreciation, deepen understanding, and encourage stewardship of the environment through our many activities and programs. For over 30 years we have been inspiring and challenging people of all ages to be better stewards of our coastal environment, ensuring conservation for generations to come.

All of our programs support our mission.
