Although much of the museum is dedicated to the history of Fort Macon, the surrounding landscape is also highlighted. In an area where people enjoy fishing the concept of "Leave No Trace Behind" is emphasized with a display of discarded fishing line that killed a bird with advice to special containers for fishing supplies/trash. Seeing the skeleton of the bird wrapped in fishing line was a poignant lesson
