The Museum of Coastal Carolina will feature a presentation by Katherine Hunt, education outreach coordinator, about manatee sightings in the Carolinas. The event will be March 18 at 11 am.
Manatees are amazing sea animals that have been spotted off of the NC coast. The animals swim through open ocean, the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, sounds and bays, rivers and creeks and marinas to graze on sea grass in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.
Families will learn about this unique mammal that does not typically migrate to our shores. The program is included with general admission to the museum.
The Museum of Coastal Carolina is located at 21 East Second Street, Ocean Isle Beach, NC. Admission to the museum is free for members. Non-member all-day admission is $9.50 for adults, $8.50 for seniors, $7.50 for children (3-12), and free for age 2 and under.
