Enjoy an opportunity to take a break from an Ocracoke Village expedition, and to learn a little bit more about what makes the island so unique, with this free talk on Barrier Island Nature that’s hosted by the National Park Service.
The Cape Hatteras National Seashore is unique in that it’s one of the longest, most isolated, and most delicate barrier island ecosystems along the Eastern Seaboard, and visitors can learn all about how these barrier islands function – from the constant concern of erosion to the myriad of wildlife that thrives in the seemingly quiet environment – in this engaging presentation. The talk is held at the Ocracoke Visitor Center Amphitheater which is located on the very tip of the island next to the Swan Quarter / Cedar Island ferry docks, and which is a scenic spot that overlooks the Pamlico Sound. In this pretty waterfront setting, visitors can relax for a quick 30 minute presentation that is packed with info on what makes Ocracoke Island - as well as the Cape Hatteras National Seashore – so undeniably unique. A great outing for family members of all ages, this special presentation that is free and wide open to the public sheds a little light on the gorgeous island environment.
