Transportation in Beaufort is changing and these changes will affect how people commute to the Duke Marine Lab.
PhD student Sarah Loftus checked out the longleaf pine forest at Patsy Pond nature trails, which are only a 30-minute drive from Duke Marine Lab.
The Emerald Isle Woods Park offers a refuge of forested trails with a view of Bogue Sound. A 40-minute drive from the Marine Lab, this park is hidden in the suburbs of Emerald Isle near the end of the barrier island.
