Cape Hatteras National Seashore and the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association have teamed up to host drop-in volunteer beach cleanup efforts from 8 a.m. to noon June 23 in celebration of World Oceans Month.
The seashore will host volunteer beach cleanup events at the following locations:
- Coquina Beach on Bodie Island. Meet park staff at the bathhouse.
- Old Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Site on Hatteras Island. Meet park staff in the parking lot.
- Day Use Area on Ocracoke Island. Meet park staff in the parking lot.
Trash bags will be provided. Participants younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Concurrent with the Seashore events, N.C. Beach Buggy Association members will be stationed at the park’s off-road vehicle ramps where visitors can obtain trash bags for collecting litter during their visit. Participants are asked to deposit the trash bags at the ramp entrance for collection.
All participants and volunteers are should bring leather work gloves, water, snacks, and sunscreen. Please wear appropriate clothing, such as closed-toe shoes and hats.
