CALS Dean, Richard Linton, toured the Eastern 4-H Environmental Education Conference Center.
"The 250-acre facility, opened in 2001, is North Carolina’s newest 4-H camp and conference center. Lee Scripture, center director, explained to the dean that it “fulfilled a promise that was made to the people of North Carolina when they closed one on Roanoke Island in the 1960s. The promise was to open a new center to serve this part of the state.”
"And fulfill that promise, the center has: Extensive boardwalks and nature trails give visitors the chance to get close to nature as they explore woodlands, meadows, pocosin forests, wetlands, creeks and rivers. The center operates year-round, serving both children and adults, Scripture added."
