Education

Rangers hold regularly scheduled educational and interpretive programs about Hammocks Beach State Park. Check the Events calendar for more information.

Educational materials about Hammocks Beach State Park have been developed for grades 6-8 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The Hammocks Beach program introduces students to the life history of sea turtles, focusing on the loggerhead sea turtle. The program's content includes information about animal adaptation, the sea turtle's lifecycle, endangered species, natural and human threats to wildlife, resource management and stewardship. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, an electronic copy of the teacher's booklet is available, free of charge, to educators.
