NEWPORT, N.C. — The North Carolina Coastal Federation wants you to practice "coastal distancing" and utilize their e-learning resources.  

They've added two sections to their website titled the "Distance Learning Lab" and "#CoastalDistancing."

The Distance Learning Lab is a compilation of educational resources. They offer a combination of videos and suggested activities. 

The #CoastalDistancing series has a bunch of resources that families can use right now in their yard, home, or on their computer.  Users can learn more about how to admire nature safely and exercise. 

The federation's membership director Kelly Bodie said, "Maybe you’ll learn something new. Maybe you’ll improve your yard or shoreline. Maybe you’ll just relax while enjoying our coast and have a fresh outlook on the future."
