Two popular and fun events are set for Saturday (May 23).

The North Carolina Coastal Land Trust staff and Philip Howard will lead a walk at 10 a.m. through Springer’s Point. Amidst the ancient live oaks, you will learn about the nature and history of this important preserve. The NCLT considers Springer’s Point to be the crown jewel of the 62,000 acres it has protected in the Coastal Plain.

The Annual Ocracoke Volunteer Firemen’s Ball kicks off at 5 p.m. with its barbecue dinners, t-shirts for sale and the silent auction. At 7 p.m. the live auction will begin followed by dancing and music well into the night provided by The Aaron Caswell Band, The Ocracoke Rockers and the Dune Dogs.
