IN THE NEWS

Since 2008, the Dorothy D. and George Curtis Clark Endowment has supported  visits to the Estuarium from students of Northeast Elementary School (Pinetown, NC), and more recently from Snowden Elementary in Aurora as well. This  endowment, established by the Clark's daughter, Mary Esther Baker, is held through the North Carolina Community Foundation.

 

Anyone wishing to help build this endowment to ensure its continued ability to underwrite Estuarium field trips for Beaufort County students may contribute through the link provided below.

ARTIST OF THE MONTH

Photographer William Ryan's photography is being showcased here at the NC Estuarium.  Mr. Ryan discovered his love for photography in his first year of college and realized he had a great career opportunity.  He enjoys portraits, sports, wildlife, nature and documenting any live event.  

"It's not just about the photography, it's the outdoor experience." A quote by Doug Gardner, who's words stuck with Mr. Ryan.  

His love of wildlife has driven him to share his photography with others and support the local ecosystem, so others can enjoy and appreciate it in the future.
