Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education

If you vacation, or live, in the Outer Banks, be sure to check out the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education in Corolla.  It's a great family friendly outing.  It is located in Currituck Heritage Park, which is a must see spot anyways, so you can just make a full afternoon of it!

Inside the building kids are fascinated by an 8,000 gallon fish tank.  There is also a giant diorama, a decoy display, and short documentary.  Additionally, the Wildlife Center hosts enjoyable classes for all ages.  The schedule is online and registration is easy.  Catherine and her cousins enjoyed an afternoon of learning how to fish.  Before casting into the water they practiced on land with magnetic fish, which you can see above.  My husband, brother-in-law, and I enjoyed a class of archery basics.  We all had a great time.

While there, you will want to visit the Currituck Beach Lighthouse.  The above picture of Catherine with the lighthouse in the background makes me smile.  That facial expression!  (I think this picture is from 2012.)  Below, Catherine is learning the fundamentals of baseball on the large lawn near the Wildlife Center. (This one is from 2014.)

By the way, this is not a sponsored post.  Whenever we visit the OBX the whole family enjoys spending some time at this location, and I wanted to share it with you.
