Barrier Island Study Center opens April 9th

The Bald Head Island Conservancy is opening a new Barrier Island Study Center on Bald Head Island, NC this April 9th.

The Study Center is impressive because it will be the first community-based research facility of its kind in the nation. This means that the research will not only enhance our understanding of barrier islands, the data will be shared with the scientific community and general public on a national and even international scale.
