Summer is here and so is special programming at the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center on Harkers Island. The school bell may have stopped ringing, but there are plenty of learning opportunities this summer at the museum!

wanna know wednesdays

Every Wednesday from June 15th to August 10th we will offer Wanna Know Wednesdays from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.  Like last summer, we will have activities for all ages.  Kids can always paint duck head cut-outs and everyone can learn about decoy carving.  In addition, various weekly programs will be offered.  Topics will include Bird Watching and Identification, Beekeeping and Nature’s Pollinators, Shell Identification, Trail Walks, and Gyotaku Fish Printing! We will also have videos running throughout the day. This summer we will have a special tribute to Cape Lookout’s 50th Anniversary in the National Park System as well as help the National Park Service celebrate its 100th Birthday! Don’t miss out!  Visit often and expand your knowledge! Check out our events page and Facebook pages for specific event programming or call the Museum at 252.728.1500. See you there!
