Shoreline Cleanup in Rodanthe
January 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join the North Carolina Coastal Federation as we partner with Dare County on Saturday, Jan. 12 from 9 a.m. to noon in Rodanthe for cleanup of the estuarine shoreline to kick off the 2019 marine debris removal efforts.
One of the federation’s primary initiatives is to reduce the amount of marine debris littering coastal shorelines and waterways. Since 2014, the federation has led the Lost Fishing Gear Recovery Project in an effort to remove lost crab pots from North Carolina sounds. The North Carolina General Assembly appropriated funding to this project to facilitate and continue this statewide project. The cleanup continues in January 2019 with both commercial fishers and community volunteers — we need your help!
This entire event will take place outdoors, so dress accordingly. Sturdy shoes for walking in wet areas are also recommended especially boots. We will have some available for use. Trash bags, gloves and other clean up materials will be provided. Refreshments will also be provided for all volunteers.
