On April 17, from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Cape Hatteras National Seashore will host a drop-in volunteer beach cleanup effort at Coquina Beach Access on Bodie Island.
Volunteers should meet Seashore staff at the bathhouse. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Concurrent with the Seashore beach cleanup event, North Carolina Beach Buggy Association (NCBBA) members will be stationed at off-road vehicle ramps where visitors can obtain trash bags for collecting litter. Participants are asked to deposit the trash bags at ramp entrances for collection when leaving the beach. For more information on NCBBA’s beach cleanup effort, contact Tom Brueckner at email@example.com.
All beach cleanup volunteers are encouraged to bring leather gloves, water, snacks and sunscreen. Please wear appropriate clothing, such as hats and closed-toed shoes.
Future beach cleanup events are scheduled for June 12 and Sept. 18, 2021.
