On North Carolina Waters: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

On North Carolina Waters: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Ben Casey has embarked on a mission to explore the major rivers of eastern NC that ultimately flow to the Atlantic Ocean. In 2002, he journeyed from Falls Dam in Raleigh to the Pamlico Sound to “interview” the Neuse River. In the spring of 2004, he traveled from the headwaters of the Trent River to its confluence with the Neuse River at New Bern. On these journeys, Casey  not only captured the scenic sights, but he also engaged with the inhabitants of the river basins to glean a picture in words of the character of life along these waterways. In this program, Casey shares photography that documents the splendor of local natural environments, as well as anecdotes from the people of the rivers. Through slides, photographs, and personal reflections, Casey’s audience joins him in his journeys down the Neuse and Trent Rivers, and on the Great Dismal Swamp Canal, viewing Loggerhead turtle hatchlings at Hammocks Beach State Park, wild ponies on Shackleford Banks, and old time fishermen surrounded by pelicans.
