Abstract:
Every fall thousands of migratory birds winter in the eastern part of the state, attracting bird watchers from as far away as Canada, California, and Texas. The Wings Over Water Festival, held in Manteo in November, brings bird watchers together with the local community. Field trips to the Outer Banks, Lake Mattamuskeet, and Alligator River provide good opportunities for wildlife viewing. Other activities include exhibits, a photography contest, and kayaking lessons.

Surfing has become very popular along the Outer Banks, especially in the Cape Hatteras area where steepening and narrowing of the continental shelf creates big waves. Surfing has grown more family-oriented, and membership in the Outer Banks Surfing Association numbers over 400. Over the past decade surf shops have multiplied threefold. There are surfing restrictions, such as avoiding piers and wearing ankle ropes, but surfers champion coastal issues, working for clean water, clean beaches, and beach access.
