Adult Summer Camp Does Coastal Science

BEAUFORT — The North Carolina Coastal Reserve recently shared video and images from its inaugural Summer Camp for Adults, a free, two-day event held here July 31-Aug.1.

The camp, intended to teach participants to conduct conservation science activities, included researcher-guided capture and marking of the crystal skipper butterfly, an endemic species only found along the Crystal Coast, which is a tourism marketing term for Carteret County.

Participants also assisted the Rachel Carson Reserve with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s marine debris cleanup effort and learned about the Duke Marine Lab Marine Robotics and Remote Sensing Program.
