illuminating the natural world

The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, located in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, has the mission “to illuminate the natural world and inspire its conservation.” The Take a Child Outside initiative is one of the ways that we support this mission internationally.

The NC Museum of Natural Sciences coordinates outdoor opportunities year-round through the downtown location, at Prairie Ridge Ecostation and NCMNS at Whiteville.
