Happy National Geologists Day! Roll your sleeves up and plan on getting your hands dirty as we study the wonderful world below us… rocks!  You will learn about some of the rocky legends that helped shape North Carolina and how they took charge of creating our beautiful beaches that we get to enjoy today.  Join a ranger for a rock-solid dig of your own searching for some hidden treasures in the sands!
