Work from APNEP’s Education and Engagement workgroup is heating up this summer! This group has met occasionally since last December to discuss mutual environmental education objectives and address estuarine environmental education needs.

Through competitive grants, APNEP has funded six projects that will enhance education in our region and support APNEP’s mission. These projects will make coastal education more accessible to high school students, environmental educators, Spanish speakers and more. Follow us on social media to hear more as these projects develop!

Hooking the region's best video clips 

UNC TV's Exploring North Carolina highlights the state's marshes and explains why this habitat can be considered the beginning of the "cafeteria line" in the way it provides food for large fish like albacore, tuna, drum, and Spanish mackerel. Our coastal economy is dependent on the marsh ecosystem because we wouldn't have big fish, shrimp or oysters if we didn't have salt marsh. In the film, Liz Baird describes the marsh behind our barrier islands: "If we were to look at it from a plane and look down, I think of it as being the frame around the picture of the estuary".
