About Coastal Federation

Whether you live and work on the coast, visit on occasion, or just dream of walking along our beautiful beaches, the well-being of your world depends on healthy oceans and coastal ecosystems.

The North Carolina Coastal Federation works to protect and restore coastal water quality and habitats throughout the North Carolina coast by collaborating with and engaging people from all walks of life who are committed to preserving the coast for current and future generations.
