Natural and Cultural Resources TV

Making a Holiday Dish at Tryon Palace in New Bern

Can't take your students to one of places for a field trip? Our Natural and Cultural Resources TV series brings our historic sites, parks, aquariums and museums to your classroom whether you're in Cashiers, Charlotte or Chicago.

Each program in the series takes the shape of a live, interactive 45-minute webcast. We present information through live demonstrations and then give you and your students the chance to ask questions of the experts through a chat feature.

Though some of the programs are a tailored to a specific audience such as school children or conservation professionals, anyone can participate.

What's Coming Up

Our next program will explore the history and culture of the ancient New River area in the northwestern part of the state. Rangers will explore how the river was almost interrupted by a dam, and how New River State Park came into being as a treasure and resource for future generations. That program will be held on Wednesday, June 29 at 11 a.m. Registration will open in late May.

Past Programs

Past programs have introduced students to the science behind Civil War cannon fire and given them the opportunity to interact with archaeologists working on recovering artifacts from the wreck of Blackbeard's flagship, Queen Anne's Revenge.

This program was first made possible through a generous grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
