9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Coastal North Carolina is a major breeding spot for neo-tropical migratory birds. These birds winter in the Caribbean, Central and South America, and make their spring and summer home in this area. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and Goose Creek State Park will offer a field trip where we will identify these birds by sight and sound, as well as learn about the biology, habitat requirements and life cycles of these well-traveled birds. To register, please contact the park. E-mail email@example.com
or call the park office at (252) 923-2191

Our Symbol of Freedom
Did you know the bald eagle was not always our nation’s symbol of freedom? Come learn about this national symbol and another animal that was nominated to represent the United States. After an introduction to both animals we will take a short hike to see if we can spot a bald eagle. Meet at parking lot #3, the last paved lot in the park.
