Donal C. O'Brien, Jr. Sanctuary and Audubon Center in Corolla

Stroll Through the Upgraded Nature Trail

With waterfowl and other migrants arriving daily, the Currituck Sound and marshes are bustling with winter activity. Experience the wonder of winter birding up close in Corolla. 

The Audubon Sanctuary Nature Trail is a nearly 3-mile path, tucked behind the Pine Island Racquet and Fitness Club, allows visitors to experience an amazing diversity of birds and wildlife. Visitors can enjoy the maritime forest, the Currituck Sound marshes, wildlife and amazing bird-watching vistas.

This winter, work will be done to make the path more accessible and informative. Benches, crafted by our own Audubon North Carolina staff and volunteers now provide rest stops along the trail. Additionally, new signs with interpretive graphics will be installed and upgrades are planned for the overlook platforms providing sweeping views of the Currituck marshes.
