Our education reaches into homes, schoolyards, businesses, and the halls
of government by providing hands-on, tangible learning experiences for
people of all ages and walks of life. We educate current and future
decision-makers to be informed and effective stewards in protecting and
restoring coastal resources.
Our student engagement programs align with formal public education
standards adopted by the N.C. Department of Public Instruction and serve
as opportunities for enriched learning both in the classroom and
We educate thousands of adults and their families each year through
volunteer opportunities with our advocacy and restoration projects, and
with field trips and community outings to help celebrate our coast. We
also have active social media sites that keep people informed about
coastal issues and happenings.
We target professionals that work to manage and develop our coast with
technical workshops and conferences that offer opportunities to obtain
new knowledge and skills, solve problems, as well as obtain continuing
education hours for engineers, landscape architects, surveyors, land use
planners, and other development professionals.
