Join us for a great bird watching opportunity in conjunction with the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences. Mattamuskeet and Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuges in eastern North Carolina host one of the largest concentrations of winter birds along the East Coast. Learn how to identify waterfowl, raptors and other bird species. Easy to moderate short hikes and easy viewing from the bus make this an ideal trip for both novice and seasoned birders.

Preregistration required.  Registration deadline, November 1.
