Edmund “Beau” McCaffray is a longtime volunteer and friend of the federation. Before Beau retired from the New Hanover County Schools, his second favorite job was developing vegetation and fuel model maps for both Cape Hatteras and Lookout National Seashores a long time ago. He and his wife, Sue, have lived on Pages Creek for the past 25 years and look forward to the day when the creek is once again open to shellfishing.
