Thanks to a generous grant from the Walmart Foundation, all Educator Trek costs have been reduced for 2012-13.

Explore the beautiful coast of North Carolina as we learn about coastal resources and ecology. Travel to Rachel Carson National Estuarine Research Reserve to learn about salt marshes and perhaps catch a glimpse of the wild horses that call the island complex home. We'll also visit nearby longleaf pine savannas as well as Fort Macon and Hammocks Beach State Parks.
