EXPLORE THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT OF SOUTHEASTERN NORTH CAROLINA
The Oak Island Nature Center allows visitors to get up close and personal with some of the area’s natural inhabitants—both animal and vegetation. Be sure to check out the center’s Talking Trees Walking Trail which highlights local trees like the Dogwood, American Holly, the Devil’s Walking Stick, Southern Magnolia, Black Cherry and Black Gum. Many of these trees can also be found in Brunswick Forest’s natural area with boardwalk located in the heart of the community.
In addition to prime viewing of local wildlife, the Oak Island Nature center has animal exhibits for younger visitors featuring some native as well as domesticated furry and feathered friends. The trails through the center lead to a lovely overlook where visitors can spy native water birds in the nearby marshes and on the Intracoastal Waterway.
SEASONAL FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
The Oak Island Nature Center is open through September with free admission for all guests. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to visit this unique local attraction with your family members and neighbors before the summer season is over!
