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

Canoe and camp in a North Carolina swamp forest along the majestic Roanoke River. Spend the night on a camping platform listening to a cacophony of Barred Owls and other creatures of the darkness. During the day we will explore a bottomland hardwood swamp ecosystem, a critical habitat for fish, neotropical migratory birds and other wildlife from river otters to Black Bears.
