Living History, Wild Classroom
Cape Lookout National Seashore is a great place for students (and teachers!) to explore a variety of subjects, from barrier island ecology to North Carolina history.
Explore the park during a class field trip, on your own or with a Park Ranger. If your school is unable to come to Cape Lookout National Seashore, bring the park to your classroom with traveling trunks and lesson plans.
