Seashore has volunteer opportunities for Hatteras teens

The National Park Service invites all Hatteras Island uprising seventh through 12th graders to join in some exciting summer volunteer experiences.

  •  Assist in staffing the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on the monthly full moon and weekly moonlight climbs
  •  Help a ranger teach visitors about the creatures of the sound and sea at a soundside seining program
  •  Join other teens in field projects that will aid in protecting the seashore.

“This is a great opportunity to get involved with education and protection of the unique natural and cultural resources on this very special and dynamic island where you live,” park officials said in a press release.

There will be a kick-off youth group meeting at the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Double Keeper’s Quarters on Thursday, July 2 at 7:30 p.m.  Call 252-995-4474, ext.25, to let the park know that you plan to attend the meeting and are interested in volunteering.  You must bring a parent with you to the meeting.  If you have questions, call 252-995-4474, ext. 24, or e-mail park ranger Laura Sturtz at [email protected].
