Echinoderm... or Echino-don't

THIS IS A NC SCIENCE FESTIVAL SPONSORED PROGRAM.

Join a ranger at the park as we will explore the world of echinoderms and some of the different species that can be found in our surrounding waters. You will hear about some crazy facts and myths of some of them as we try to discover their real world below the water surface.  We will also investigate their natural history including their habitats, what they eat, and any threats they may have before releasing them back where we found them.
