Ocracoke basketball is on today (Jan. 27) in the school gym. The games will be broadcast on Ocracoke’s community radio station WOVV, 90.1 FM as the two varsity teams take on the Perquimans Pirates. Provided the server will be working, this will include streaming at wovv.org. Lady Dolphins (9-5) tip-off at 3 p.m. and the Dolphins (8-6) follow right after.

Rob Emens, an environmental specialist for the North Carolina Department of Environment Quality, will present a program (Jan. 27) describing the efforts to stop the spread of invasive plant species along the shorelines of North Carolina. This lecture is part of the Know Your Park citizen science program series.

The program will be held 7 p.m. in the Ocracoke Community Center.
