The shores of North Carolina are changing due to human land use, climate change, and sea level rise. The goal of this citizen science project is to engage the public in documenting the change of these ecosystems using mobile devices. We have installed observation areas in seventeen natural areas, including National Wildlife Refuges and NC State parks, along the coast. You can learn more about the project and the changes that are occurring by exploring this website. You can learn about ghost forests by watching this glideshow.
