Maritime Forests: Where Beauty and Science Converge

Record #:
The Outer Banks's maritime forests, including Currituck Banks, Buxton Woods, and Zeke's Island, provide groundwater storage and refuge for wildlife. Climate changes from north to south account for the variety in vegetation with cabbage palmetto trees on the southern end and deciduous canopy trees on the northern. Protecting the forest is a joint effort of local, state, and federal agencies.
