Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education
The Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education extols the virtue of viewing nature up close. The center includes a wildlife program for all ages such as fishing, crabbing and exploring the coastal ecosystem. Located in the Currituck Heritage Park, the Center has something for everyone.
A short film, Life by Water’s Rhythms, showcases wildlife of the northern Outer Banks.
The featured Currituck Sound Aquarium is alive with native fishes. Walk around the 8,000-gallon tank and enjoy the view.
Vintage decoys and sporting heritage exhibits feature one-of-a-kind artifacts and world-class decoys that are part of the culture and tell the story of the region’s water fowling heritage.
Stop in the Wild Store to take home a wildlife-oriented book, art, clothing or poster.
