Join us the second and fourth Saturday of each month at 11:00 am for our Coastal Discoveries program. Discover treasures of the tides investigating the array of things you can find on the beach and learn about the purpose of the various structures seen along the shore. This program will explore best beach practices and encourage you to implore your sand scavenging skills whether you live at the beach or are just visiting.
On January 14 we’ll feature Sand Scavengers. Discover treasures of the tides and learn about shells, shark teeth, and more. This interactive program will talk about beach friendly shell practices, finding tidal treasures, and how to keep the beach safe for animals and people.
On Jan 28 the focus will be Sea turtles. Sea turtles are frequent visitors to the North Carolina coast, with several individuals nesting on beaches from the Outer Banks to our own Ocean Isle Beach. Learn about the species of sea turtles in NC, how volunteers track sea turtle nests, and what we can do to protect sea turtles. Then, experience being a sea turtle scientist through our Sea Turtle Quest virtual reality program.
