The North Carolina Coastal Federation is calling for volunteers to join in a debris cleanup from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, May 8, in Wanchese.
Meet at Peele Family Dentistry, 2038 N.C. 345, to check in with organizers and collect supplies such as trash bags, gloves and other cleanup materials.
Federation staff will direct staff small groups of volunteers where to work and to maintain safe distances while conducting the cleanup. It will be required that volunteers wear a mask or face covering.
Organizers recommend volunteers dress appropriately for the weather because this cleanup will take place outdoors. Sturdy shoes for walking in wet areas are also recommended, especially boots, and bring water, a snack and any medications.
The debris cleanup of the estuarine shoreline and roadsides is part of a districtwide spring cleaning initiative.
Because capacity is limited, organizers ask volunteers to register ahead of the cleanup you plan to attend.
