We're going to beautiful Fort Caswell in Oak Island, NC this September to participate in their hands-on marine science and history programs.
During our 4-day/3-night stay, we'll explore Fort Caswell's 248 acres of historical structures, salt marsh, beach, and maritime forest at the mouth of the Cape Fear River. We'll learn about blue crabs, coastal fish, marshes, manatees, meteorology, plankton ecology, marine ecosystems, conservation, sea turtles, and more!
We'll also go kayaking, eat S'mores around a bonfire while learning about pirates, hear the Civil War history of the fort while on a hayride, and find out more about the lives of early sailors and fishermen in the area.
All ages are welcome on this trip (including grandparents), as are homeschoolers from other states (and countries).
