Neuseway Nature Center in Kinston reopens

GREENVILLE N.C. (WNCT) – The Exchange Nature Center at the Neuseway Nature Park in Kinston reopened Thursday after receiving extensive damage by Hurricane Matthew almost one year ago.

The city held a special ceremony to mark the reopening.

The park received thousands of dollars in damage from Matthew in October.

Gov. Roy Cooper was at the park to cut the ceremonial ribbon.

For Neusway naturalist Taryn Sutton, it meant her passion can come back to life.

“I am so excited and ready to teach,” Sutton said. “I know everybody has been anticipating the nature center reopening. It’s almost been a year since Matthew hit, so we’ve been closed the whole time.”
