Possumwood Acres Wildlife Sanctuary participates in the Alternative Break program with schools across the country annually. We are always happy to introduce new students from other locations to come here and experience what the coastal North Carolina area has to offer. Our spring weather is usually mild, the beaches are close by, and there are a large variety of local outdoor activities and watersports to choose from. There are also many cultural sites to visit up and down the coast, and historic military sites with monuments and memorials are open to the public. The local restaurants offer fresh seafood daily, as well as typical southern style BBQ and “down home” cooking.
