Southeast Coastal Ambassador Meeting: We the Water Prep Party
August 23 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Over the next three years, members of Wrightsville Beach Outrigger Canoe Club (WBOCC) will paddle the entire North Carolina coast to advocate for clean water, empower local communities, bring awareness of contamination and protect the most vital element of our lives: water.
A collaborative effort of everyday people who believe everyone should have access to clean water, the first leg along the southeastern NC coast will kick off in September 2022 when members of WBOCC will paddle an outrigger canoe from Sunset Beach to Ocean, NC. Roughly 120 miles, this journey will tell the story of the North Carolina coast – from threats and risks to solutions and triumphs – and how we can all make a difference in protecting and restoring the place we call home.
Join us on August 23rd for a prep party to prepare for the journey! We will make signs, prepare education materials for stops along the route, and help with various logistics. After our work is complete at the office, we will walk ~half mile to Wrightsville SUP where we will see the canoes up close and personal, and even get a chance to paddle in Banks Channel. Please be prepared to walk the 1 mile round-trip, and wear comfortable clothes that can get wet if you wish to paddle (optional).
