Summer Public Field Trips on the Rachel Carson Reserve
06/03/2014 to 08/22/2014Call 252-838-0883
Public field trips on the Rachel Carson component of the N.C. National Estuarine Research Reserve occur on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30-10:30am during June, July and August. All programs are open and free to the public but reservations are required as boat space is limited. Call 252-838-0883 to make reservations or for more information.

The Reserve offers three types of field trips:

Nature hikes occur during low tides, when the most amount of land is exposed on the island. Be prepared to get your shoes wet and muddy. We require close-toed shoes because of the abundance of oysters on the island. You may also have the opportunity to swim on the nature hike, so dress accordingly.
Boardwalk trips occur at high tide, when the water is high enough in the estuary for our 24’ skiff to easily navigate around the island to our boardwalk located on Carrot Island.
Circumnavigation cruise on our 24’ skiff around the Reserve allows visitors a chance to view Middle Marsh after a brief stop at the boardwalk.

On all three trips, we encourage you to bring sunglasses, hats, binoculars, water and sunscreen. All field trips are free; however, we do accept donations for our nonprofit organization, FOR (Friends of the Reserve)!

Loretta Lynn Morgan was born to make music. Barely a teenager when she made her first, and everlasting, impression on country music fans, its legend sand the community, Lorrie Morgan, a child of the Opry, staked her claim as being one of the youngest to have made his/her debut at the Mother Church of Country. Taking center stage at the Grand Ole Opry, alongside her father, George Morgan, young Miss Morgan performed her rendition of “Paper Roses.” --Lorrie Morgan, however, was no “imitation,” she was as pure and authentic as a freshwater pearl.

Three short years later, after her dad’s passing, Lorrie became a road warrior to launch her own career, touring with her father’s band. Walking in her father’s footsteps, she kept his memory alive while winning countless fans encroaching her rights to become a front-and-center entertainer. Applauded for her talents and commitment to country music and her heritage, Lorrie made history of her own when she became a lifetime member of the Grand Ole Opry at the age of twenty-five; Lorrie was the youngest person ever to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
