Whales in North Carolina
November 9, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
One event on November 10, 2022 at 11:00 am
North Carolina has many species of whales that travel near our shores and sometimes strand on our beaches. This makes it ideal for scientists like Keith Rittmaster and his colleagues to study and promote the conservation and understanding of these endangered marine mammals. Join Keith to learn about the whales most commonly spotted off the coast of North Carolina and to handle some of the related display items he will present. The free program is part of the museum’s Maritime Heritage Series, informal lectures held in the museum’s auditorium and simulcast via Facebook and Zoom. Registration is not required for the in-person program.
Registration and Refund Policy:
Registration costs, less a 10% fee, are refunded when the Museum receives cancellation notice at least two weeks before the start of a program. There is no refund within two weeks of the start of a program. The Museum reserves the right to cancel any program that does not meet the minimum participant requirement up to one week before the program is scheduled. In the event of cancellation due to low enrollment, participants who have submitted a fee will receive a full refund. If a program is canceled due to inclement weather and unable to be rescheduled for another date, the participants will receive a full refund.
