Fort Macon State Park is situated at the eastern end of Bogue Banks in Carteret County, North Carolina. This barrier island has become heavily developed in recent years, leaving the park as the only large natural area on the island. Fort Macon offers a wide range of programs: EELE "Barrier Beginnings," Turtle Talk and Fort History. The environmental education program for school groups centers around a curriculum packet called the Environmental Education Learning Experience (EELE). The EELE contains pre-visit, on-site and post-visit activities that focus on the park's unique natural features and are correlated to North Carolina Department of Public Instruction objectives. Contact the park for more information about the park's EELE and other environmental education programs and activities for the general public.
