CHNS celebrating World Oceans Month
by Hosting Three Beach Cleanups  

June not only marks the beginning of summer, it also marks World Oceans Month. Our oceans, which make up approximately 70 percent of the earth, are natural treasures, a source of food and energy, and a foundation for the way of life.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore is celebrating the oceans and its resources by hosting three beach cleanups at various locations from 9:00 – 11:00 am.
  • June 21, 2017- Bodie Island, Coquina Beach bathhouse
  • June 24, 2017- Hatteras Island, Old Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Site parking lot
  • June 28, 2017- Ocracoke Island, Lifeguarded beach parking lot
Bring leather gloves, water, snacks, and sunscreen. Wear appropriate clothing, including hats and closed-toe shoes. Trash bags will be provided. Children under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian with them.
