Summer Camps at Rachel Carson Reserve

Boys on shoalThis summer the Rachel Carson Component of the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve will again host educational programs for students of all ages. All classes will be hands-on, field-based estuarine studies. This program is made possible through a partnership with the North Carolina Maritime Museum. The Reserve is taking the lead on the following programs:

Preschool Storytime and Crafts
- This program includes a story, estuarine critter observation and a related craft. Registration is required, free of charge.

Seashore Life 1 (entering grades 1 & 2)
- Students investigate coastal marine life with an emphasis on adaptations and food chains of the tidal flats, salt marshes and sounds. Field-based classes include a ferry ride, barrier hiking and animal identification.

Saltwater Science (entering grades 5 & 6)
- Students investigate wildlife and water quality while exploring coastal waters and ecosystems of the Rachel Carson Reserve.

Coastal Conservation Fellows (entering grades 7-10)
– Train with field biologists studying local flora and fauna. Students in this field course will learn data collection methods and how biologists make habitat conservation decisions.

For more information about these programs, please contact Lori Davis, education specialist, at (252) 838-0883 or lori.c.davis@ncdenr.gov, or visit the Reserve website:http://www.nccoastalreserve.net/uploads/SummerScience-2011.pdf.

The Reserve will also be assisting the Museum with its Coastal Adventuresprogram by offering nature hikes to the Rachel Carson Reserve, fish seining and plankton viewing. In addition to these programs, the Museum is also offering programs focusing on pirates, fishing, boat building and coastal photography.
