Horse Sense and Survival Trip

Horse Sense and Survival Trip

Cape Lookout National Seashore, Island Road, Harkers Island, NC | (252) 728-2250 ext. 3001

Various dates and times in June, July, September, October and November, 2016

Cape Lookout National Seashore is pleased to announce the first Horse Sense and Survival trip of 2016, which will be offered as one of several Ranger-led tours on a day that honors Cape Lookout’s 50th Anniversary and the National Park Service Centennial.  This opportunity will depart from the Harkers Island Visitor Center on Saturday, June 18 at 1:30 p.m.

The tour is led by Cape Lookout National Seashore Wildlife Biologist Sue Stuska, whose intimate knowledge of the horses makes for an exciting and enlightening glimpse into the relationships, behavior, and survival of these wild animals.  Participants will gain an appreciation of all that can be gleaned while watching from a distance.  They will understand how to determine an appropriate position and distance for watching that doesn’t affect the horses’ natural behaviors.

The National Park Service will offer six more Horse Sense and Survival excursions this year: Saturday, July 9, Saturday, July 30, Wednesday, September 14, Saturday, October 15, Wednesday, October 26, and Saturday, November 19.  Spaces on the tours are limited and reservations are required.  The only charge is the ferry fee: $16 for adults & $9 for children (11 and under).
