Cape Hatteras National Seashore beach cleanup set for June 22

On June 22, from 8 a.m. until noon, Cape Hatteras National Seashore and the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association will host drop-in volunteer beach cleanup efforts.

The Seashore will host volunteer beach cleanup events at the following locations:

– Coquina Beach Access on Bodie Island (meet park staff at the bathhouse)

– Old Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Site on Hatteras Island (meet park staff in the parking lot)

– Ocracoke Beach Access (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.

On the same day, 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 encouraged to bring leather gloves, water, snacks, and sunscreen. Wear appropriate clothing, such as closed-toe shoes and hats.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore and the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association look forward to seeing you on June 22.

And save the date: another beach cleanup event will be held Sept. 21, 2019.
