This live, interactive electronic field trip to a North Carolina estuary is conducted on two dates each year. Previous field trips are stored for non-interactive access. Teachers can access resources on such topics as estuarine and coastal monitoring, management, cultural traditions, invasive species, and habitat restoration. The lesson plans include grade level and standards applicable for technology, science, and social studies. Two estuary videos, "Waters of Life" and "Estuary Rap", are also available. A link to the National Estuaries Day event site is included.
