Transcript of Coastal Project NC
The North Carolinian Coast
In the spring, it gets warmer, and you can go to the beach and go swimming. Go hunting for crabs or watch for dolphins! But watch out; Tornadoes are much more common during the springtime.
During the summer, there is always the small possibility for hurricanes, but despite that, you can play in the sand, go on your boat, and have fun all day! In these warmer months, however, thunderstorms appear even more and cause lots of damage.
Going into the autumn, there is an average temperature of 66 degrees Fahrenheit, and during that time, you could tour Cape Hatteras, a famous lifehouse North Carolina is home to.
Winter is sometimes very cold, falling to approximately 55 degrees Fahrenheit (average). In these months, feel free to go horseback riding along the shore!
And 46 to 54 inches of rain is expected in this region throughout the year!
Weather and Climate
There's one thing you'll always see on the coast of North Carolina: Animals! There are many different species, and more to be found, but here's some information on four specific types!
Red- Throated Loon
These birds are often found nesting by small pools, with a blue-gray color on its face and the sides of its neck. The red throat that gives it the name is also very visible.
The national symbol of freedom in our country is sometimes spotted in this area. The endangered species' often has a wing span varying between 6 feet to 7 and a half feet!
This beautiful swan is very distinct with its pure white feathers and the contrast of its dark bill and legs. They earned their name by making nests by the tundra lakes and pools.
Over one hundred of these beautiful animals are can be found on the island of Shackleford Banks. They're descendants of horses that arrived by way of ranch from Hispainola.
Resources are obviously a very important part of economy and life today. Here are some from the NC coast!
Soy beans are very popular nowadays, and are in many foods you eat. They have a significant amount of protein in them, and also are quite good at regenerating soil, what with its nitrogen-fixing properties.
Sweet potatoes have been around for at least 5,000 years, if not more. They have also been enjoyed for this same amount of time. Often mistaken as a yam, in some parts of North America, this member of the Convolvulaceae family is deliciously sweet and great with brown sugar!
Bright Leaf Tobacco
This kind of tobacco is often called "Virginia tobacco", no matter where it is made. The reason it is so popular is because it can grow in thin, starved soils, so it doesn't require rich, high-maintenance soil.
Though very common in allergies, this small nut containing protein from the legume family is eaten by many today. It first originated in either the country of Paruguay, or Bolivia, about 7,600 years ago!
As you can tell, the beautiful shore of a beautiful state has a lot to be learned about. North Carolina's coast has much to offer, between horseback riding, bird watching, and having fun on the beach!
We hope you enjoyed our presentation!
