The Natural World of Currituck
Heading south in the autumn skies, ducks and geese aim for Currituck's hospitable marshes and shallow waters. They migrate thousands of miles along aerial highways to find this special place. Here lie Currituck Sound's sheltering marshes and a thin, sandy strip of barrier island with maritime forests and shifting dunes. Beyond the dunes is the Atlantic Ocean. Currituck is a place of water, wind, sand and salt, a world that is always changing, never permanent. Yet this world has consistently attracted waterfowl and people for thousands of years.
