TRINITY CENTER – Silent Retreat
Rates: $74.00 per night / $20 non-refundable registration fee
Take advantage of an opportunity to explore your sense of self, your life purpose(s) and its meaning. Choose to stay anywhere from 2 nights to the entire scheduled retreat time at Pelican House. Bring a good book, the Good Book, a beach towel and writing materials…whatever you need to find rest and peace. Pray, meditate or rest in your private room, at a variety of reflective outdoor locations or in the comfort of Pelican House porches. Rules of Silence apply in the Pelican House during silent retreat weeks except during worship. Some Silent Retreats offer a host for the week who may offer the Daily Offices from the Book of Common Prayer either in the oratory at Pelican House or at the Julian Chapel at Trinity Center.

Road Scholar – Adventures in Lifelong Learning
Birding on the Outerbanks:
Coastal Forests and Island Sanctuaries
Discover areas of the Outer Banks that the National Audubon Society call “essential strongholds of avian abundance and diversity.” Waterfowl, waders, songbirds, and shorebirds from over 200 species — 23 of which are rare — call the sandy barrier islands, marshes, and forests home. Explore rare habitats of pocosin and maritime forests as our ornithology experts help you locate and identify ospreys, terns, herons, oystercatchers, plovers, geese and more.
• Journey by boat to Bird Shoal, the sandy, uninhabited barrier island and best place to see the rare species of plovers skirting the waves.
• Explore the last remnants of rare maritime southern pine forests and the shrubby, bog-like pocosins habitats with birding forays with our ornithology experts.
• Learn more about the birds of prey with a demonstration from a raptor rehabilitator.
Activity NotesWalks up to two miles over varied terrain, some wet.
Coordinated by Trinity Conference Center.
