The Sound to Sea Program is the only residential Environmental Education Program on the Outerbanks. Following the NC Curriculum Standards, Sound to Sea uses the habitats of our 58-acre barrier island preserve to help students understand why and how we are tied to the earth. By studying the Biology, Cultural and Current Events on a Barrier Island, students will have the opportunity to learn about the unique adaptations of the plants and animals that live on a barrier island, how man has used these plants and animals throughout history, or how the loss of this amazing biodiversity is harmful to human health. Baba Dioum, an African Naturalist, explains the situation most elegantly "In the end, we will only conserve what we love. We will only love what we understand. We will only understand what we are taught." Our goal is to have the Sound to Sea Program to be the first step in this chain.
