The program is free and open to the public; free refreshments.

Sutton will share information and photographs of the refuge, one of many National Wildlife Refuges in North Carolina and Virginia. The Alligator River Wildlife Refuge consists of 152,000 acres and is located inland from North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Just south of Nags Head, on Route 64, a bridge crosses Roanoke Sound to Roanoke Island. This route then continues over Croatan Sound to the Alligator River Wildlife Refuge. North of the Refuge is Albemarle Sound which connects to the Alligator River, which is located on the western part of the refuge. The southern boundary leads to Pamlico Sound and the Mattamusket National Wildlife Refuge.
