Educator Trek: Secrets of the Swamp

  • 8:00am Saturday, April 29, 2017 - 6:00pm Sunday, April 30, 2017
barred owl

Explore North Carolina’s bottomland hardwood forest and experience a night in a remote swamp. We will camp on the Roanoke River Partner’s platforms in the homes of beaver, barred owls, and migratory songbirds. Go to bed to the hootin’ and hollerin’ of barred owls and wake to the sweet call of prothonotary warblers. Become familiar with one of North Carolina’s true wild areas and bring new ideas and activities back to your students!
