In this edition of 'Crystal Coast Tales from the Tides', we set sail to the Rachel Carson Reserve and introduce you to Paula Gillikin, who manages the island as the Central Sites Manager, N.C. Coastal Reserve & National Estuarine Research Reserve. Hundreds of years ago her Gillikin family used to own the land and she feels privileged to be taking care of the Rachel Carson Reserve. Through Paula we learn about the island’s significance, visitor tips, and meet its beloved wild horses!
