About This Event

Registration closes Friday 8/28/23 at 12 p.m.!

This unique field trip day allows you to come for part or all of the adventures! Join us just in the morning for the bird walk, just in the afternoon to learn about rare organisms that call Southeastern NC home, or stay for the whole day. Be sure to either bring your own lunch, or plan for time between programs to pick something up from a nearby restuarant (~10 minute drive).

Fall Bird Walk

Fall is a busy time in the bird world. Migrants are heading south and resident species are busy prepping for the winter. This makes for good birdwatching since you never know who will turn up. Head out on this guided walk to see how many species can be found. Bring binoculars if you have them, some loaner pairs are available. Sept. 7, 8:30-10 am.

Optional* Lunch With a Ranger/Center Staff

Want to find out more about Clark Park and the surrounding area or just have a chance to chat with fellow nature lovers? Join us for lunch from 11:30 am-12:30 pm on the back porch of the nature center. Participants will be responsible for providing their own lunch.

North Carolina's Rarest Residents

Our state is known for its biodiversity but not all species are common or easily observed. Some species are naturally rare or live here at the edge of their range. Others have been made rare by human activities. Learn about some of our rarest and most unusual neighbors. Sept. 7, 1-2:30 pm.
