North Carolina Aquarium Society

A group of 5th graders met educators from the NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island at the Bonnett Street beach access in Nags Head for their Sea2Sound (S2S) Walking Field Trip experience on Thursday, October 3rd. Funded by a Ribbon of Hope grant from the NC GlaxoSmithKline Foundation, the S2S is a daylong exploration of four different ecosystems found along a line from the beach to Roanoke Sound. This experience provides 5th graders will hands-on, in-the-field learning which complements their in-school curriculum and state standards. All of Dare County’s 5th grade classes will have an opportunity to complete their own S2S experience in the coming school year, thanks to the Foundation!
