Shoreline Cleanup at Hoop Pole Creek
February 19 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Volunteers will help to remove assorted trash and debris items, as well as trim trees and bushes along the trail. The entire event will take place outdoors, so please dress accordingly. Closed-toed shoes are required, and sturdy shoes for walking in wet areas are also recommended. Boots are appropriate if you choose to walk along the water’s edge. Trash bags, gloves and other cleanup materials will be provided. Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
This project is part of the Federation’s overall effort to ensure the North Carolina coast is free of marine debris. Establishing an annual paid program for marine debris removal – including crab pots – is a key objective of the N.C. Marine Debris Action Plan, and will take place this winter.
The Federation will be working on other preventative strategies in the coming year, including building coastal docks and piers to improve and create more resilient construction standards. We need your help putting this plan into action to prevent and remove marine debris and inspire community involvement. We hope you can join us!
If you plan to attend, please register so we can plan supplies accordingly.
