Despite that amazing fact, oysters once were numerous enough in NC’s coastal waters to be called hazards to navigation.  Today, we'll meet at the kayak dock behind the visitor center for a up close look at oysters and how they benefit people and the environment. Bring your math skills and a willingness to get your hands dirty as we investigate the survival rate of baby oysters in the estuary. In case of rain, this program will be moved to the exhibit hall. 1572 Hammock Beach Rd, Swansboro, NC 28584
