We let North Carolina’s estuaries, marshland, and beaches become the classroom.

Environmental Stewardship Program

Fort Caswell is surrounded by a salt marsh, the Cape Fear River, and the Atlantic Ocean. These unique ecosystems make for an amazing outdoor classroom, which is the foundation of our Environmental Stewardship Program. We partner with educators like you to give students unforgettable experiences that reinforce a sense of appreciation and respect for our environment.

The program provides top-quality field trips for kindergarten through 12th-grade school groups, focusing on hands-on experiential learning. This includes customized day trips, overnight trips, and evening programs for our school groups.

We also offer Community Programs, such as Explore the Shore, Bird Walks, Kayak Eco Tours, Sea Turtle 101, Living Shoreline 101, and History Tours.
