Carolina Beach State Park walk

(9 - 11 a.m.)

Carla Edwards, Park Ranger at CBSP, and Dr. AJ Bullard, expert on native woody vines, shrubs and trees, will lead the walk.  We will visit some newly burned areas where Longleaf habitat restoration is taking place and will end with the Flytrap Trail.

Several coastal ecosystems are present in the park. Forests dominated by longleaf pine, turkey oak and live oak occupy the dry, coarse soil of a series of relict sand dunes. Between the dunes are dense shrub swamps, called pocosins, populated by pond pines, loblolly and sweet bay, yaupon and evergreen shrubs. Brackish marshes consisting primarily of cordgrasses and sedges can be found beyond the relict dunes adjacent to the river.  This is a special place, with 382 species of vascular plants within its boundary.
