Swamp Life Discoveries will include a .75 mile hike through a typical North Carolina swamp and marsh. Throughout the hike there will be multiple stops to observe, catch and study some of the critters that call the swamp "home".

As an official 2016 North Carolina Science Festival event, Swamp Life Discoveries is among hundreds of community-based events that are showcasing STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities for the citizens of North Carolina.
Founded in 2010, the North Carolina Science Festival is the first statewide science festival in the United States. Through a two-week series of community-based events each spring (hosted by schools, colleges, libraries, museums, parks, businesses and other local organizations), the Festival celebrates the economic, educational and cultural impact of science in North Carolina.
"Science is fun, science is everywhere, science is for everyone - that's what the North Carolina Science Festival is all about," said Jonathan Frederick, Festival director. "In 2016, we have a special focus on 'Science in the Great Outdoors' in partnership with North Carolina State Parks, with events from April 8 through April 24."
The North Carolina Science Festival is presented by the Biogen Foundation and produced by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. For more information, visit www.ncsciencefestival.org
