Abstract:
Charles Kuralt's love of the outdoors developed from his years of growing up in North Carolina and his later travels across America. One of the most popular features of his CBS television program, \"Sunday Morning,\" was the last five-minute segment in which he brought the beauty of the nation's National Wildlife Refuges and other wilderness landscapes to millions of viewers. To honor his efforts, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service created the Charles Kuralt Trail, which links eleven national wildlife refuges and one national fish hatchery. The trail winds though the coastal plain of Virginia and North Carolina, and includes the Great Dismal Swamp and Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge.
