should be brought off the beach at the end of each visit. Following the
principle of pack it in, pack it out will help to reduce the volume of
trash and litter that is found on Seashore beaches on a daily basis.

informational pack it in, pack it out sign at the entrance to Ramp 43
in Buxton, North Carolina on Wednesday, August 2 at 11:30 am. All
members of the public are invited to attend this special event.
Seashore and OBPA collaborated on the design of the informational pack

funds for the purchase of the signs that will be placed at key areas
along the Seashore by National Park Service staff. Additionally, a pack

Hallac stated: “We appreciate OBPA’s commitment to helping keep the
beaches at the Seashore clean and enjoyable for all visitors.”
