Public Invited to Celebrate National Estuaries and Public Lands Day

BEAUFORT - North Carolina's estuarine system is the third largest in the country, encompassing more the 2 million acres. 

In celebration of this outstanding resource, members of the public are invited to attend a National Estuaries Day and Public Lands Day event on Saturday at the N.C. Maritime Museum, 315 Front Street, Beaufort. The event is free and includes a variety of activities for all ages, including field trips to the Rachel Carson Reserve, a Big Sweep estuary cleanup, an education tent and continuous showings of the film “Waters of Life,” produced by the N.C. National Estuarine Research Reserve. Call (252) 838-0883 to reserve a spot on the ferry for the cleanup and field trips.

National Estuaries Day is an annual celebration of estuaries, the vibrant coastal areas where rivers meet the sea.  It is a great opportunity to learn more about these magical ecosystems and how you can help to protect them.  National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy.
