FULL MOON LIGHTHOUSE CLIMBS – August 26th – Bodie Island and Cape Hatteras Lighthouses Grab your flashlight and experience a lighthouse at night. Hear stories of keepers of old, view the working light close up in the lantern room, and catch the reflection off the Atlantic Ocean of the newly-risen full moon as you stand on the lighthouse balcony. Tickets to climb are required. Children joining the climb must be at least 42-inches tall and must climb the steps on their own—they cannot be carried. Also, keep in mind that some youngsters may not enjoy the dimly lit, sometimes claustrophobic environment. Children 11 years of age and younger must be accompanied by an adult (16 or older). Prior to purchasing tickets, consider your own limitations and those of your group. The lighthouse is tall, dark, often hot and humid, and can be a challenge to climb. There is no air conditioning or internal lights. The climb may be weather dependent. TICKETS ARE REQUIRED. Climbing tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for senior citizens (62 or older), children 11 years of age and under, and the disabled. Climb tickets are available on a first come, first served basis and can only be purchased in-person at the site the day of the climb. There are no advance ticket sales for regular climbs. Ticket sales begin at 8:45 am and climbs begin at 9 am, running every 15 minutes with a limit of 12 visitors per climb. Ticket sales close at 4:25 pm. Ticket holders should arrive at the base of the lighthouse five minutes prior to their ticketed climb time. https://www.nps.gov/caha/planyourvisit/lighthouseclimbs.htm

carolista baumCAROLISTA BAUM BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION! – Sunday, August 30th – 12:00 to 2:00 pm – Jockey’s Ridge State Park Visitors Center – Nags Head – Join the Friends of Jockey’s Ridge for a Celebration of Carolista Baum’s Birthday! “She saved our sand dune!” On a summer morning in 1973, Carolista’s children were playing on the dunes. When they saw a bulldozer flattening out part of Jockey’s Ridge, they ran home to tell their mother. She went to investigate and found that the earth moving machine was preparing a residential development site at the base of Jockey’s Ridge, forcing her into action. She planted herself in the path of the bulldozer, forcing the operator to shut the equipment down. Carolista then founded People to Preserve Jockey’s Ridge, contacted landowners, raised money and lobbied the state. On May 31st, 1975, North Carolina listened and declared Jockey’s Ridge a State Park. Carolista’s legacy was born. There will be live music by the Mojo Collins Band, a kite-making class, an Art Exhibit, free tacos and Rita’s Ice, a Baum family dove release, sales of a limited edition “Save Our Sand Dune” 40th Anniversary t-shirt, and a video featuring Carolista from 1975. “Save the Dunes,” Carl Sandburg said, motivated by Carolista’s efforts. “They belong to the people they represent the signature of time and eternity. Their loss would be irrevocable.” For more information, go to www.facebook.com/friendsofjockeysridge
