Help sweep the seashore beaches 

On June 23, from 8 a.m. to noon, Cape Hatteras National Seashore and the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association will host drop-in volunteer beach cleanup efforts to celebrate 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. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. 

Concurrent with the seashore events, beach buggy association members will be stationed at the seashore’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 encouraged to bring leather gloves, water, snacks, and sunscreen and wear appropriate clothing, such as closed-toe shoes and hats.
