About the App:

Coastal Eco Explorer is a mobile application guiding Carolina Beach State Park hikers in the exploration of ecologically sensitive terrain. The mobile application was created as a partnership between UNC Wilmington faculty and students and North Carolina State Park rangers in 2019-2020 to highlight a variety of geographically relevant resources. The mobile app guides both novice and experienced hikers by providing virtual educational information at each of the park’s 13 native ecosystems. Specific resources, including videos of rangers, are offered as further opportunities to explore the regions during the hike.
