Environmental Education Center & Branch Library

Black Bear, Bobcat, and Alligator

The EEC is home to an environmentally themed exhibit, "Discover Onslow." The exhibit explores the ecology, geography, flora, and fauna of Onslow County. The center island displays a number of the native fauna, including a black bear, bobcat, and twelve foot alligator. Other sections teach about the rivers of Onslow, its plants and animals, culture, environment and ecology. "Discover Onslow" is an excellent way to teach youngsters about their surroundings.


The EEC is free and open to the public. To learn more about scheduling a group tour please visit our Field Trips and Tours page.
