Blowing Rocks Beach Walk
Blowing Rocks Preserve is a conservation area maintained by The Nature Conservancy. It is the longest stretch of limestone shoreline on the Atlantic Coast in the United States. Seawater has eroded tunnels in the rocks that funnel water into shooting plumes at high tide. Depending on the tide levels, these plumes can reach up to 50 feet tall! The rocks also provide a habitat for a variety of shoreline creatures, giving a great opportunity to explore this shoreline’s nooks, crannies and tide pools in search of marine life. Participants will be led on a biblically-based tour of the area. Field trip participants will meet at Blowing Rocks Preserve and be led on a beach walk during which they will be provided with a biblically-based overview of the rocky shore coastal habitat. As the waves constantly crash against the rocks, creating salt spray even at low tide, YOU WILL GET WET! It is recommended that participants wear swim suits under their clothes and beach appropriate footwear. Shoes are required as the rough limestone can be sharp in various places. Personal items such as electronic devices, wallets or cameras must be sealed in plastic, waterproof bags or left in a safe place in your vehicle. Food is not allowed at the Preserve so please plan accordingly. There is a public park just 1 mile south of the Preserve where you can eat lunch.
