NC Wildlife Refuge Offers Open-Air Winter Tour

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is offering an alternative to the hectic holiday pace, but it involves being outside and dressing in layers.

The service is providing an open-air tram ride through the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge near Manteo. It begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday.

A news release from the service says visitors can see which animals hibernate as winter begins, and those attending can also see what goes on at the refuge during the cold season.

No reservations are required, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Warm clothing, blankets and hot, non-alcoholic beverages are encouraged.
