Living with an IslandIsland Living
Forming North Carolina's most southeastern tip at Cape Fear, Bald Head Island presents a stunningly diverse geography of salt marshes, sand dunes and old growth maritime forest. A little over 25 years ago conservationists and developers worked together striking a balance between what people need to thrive in a subtropical environment and what the islands need. Explore the interplay of people and place in this unique coastal barrier system.

Island InspirationsOld Baldy
"Old Baldy" is not just a beacon to tourists. It (and the island it watches over) brings inspiration to a special group of artists. Against the spectacular seascape, they gather biannually to engage in the creative process. They also come for another purpose...to sell some of their paintings in order to help disadvantaged artists through a Dutch non-profit called Paint a Future. Meet these talented artists and see why Bald Head Island keeps beckoning their return.

Nocturnal VisitorsHatchling
Enthusiastic volunteers help a seldom seen nocturnal visitor to our coastal shores—loggerhead turtles. Flourishing for millions of years, the number of loggerhead turtles only began to crash relatively recently, primarily by human factors. This decline spurred the Bald Head Island Conservancy to action protecting the turtles' habitat and educating the public. See how this dedicated group works to preserve the life cycle of these fascinating creatures.
