NCBBA and Cape Hatteras National Seashore
Team Up to Host Beach Clean-ups
September 22, from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m., Cape Hatteras National
Seashore (Seashore) and the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association
(NCBBA) will host drop-in volunteer beach cleanup efforts to celebrate
National Public Lands Day.
The Seashore will host volunteer beach cleanup events at the following locations:
Coquina Beach on Bodie Island (meet park staff at the bathhouse)
Frisco Bathhouse on Hatteras Island (meet park staff in the parking lot)
Ocracoke Day Use Area (meet park staff in the parking lot)
Trash bags will be provided. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Concurrent with the Seashore events, NCBBA members will be stationed at the park’s off-road vehicle ramps
where visitors can pick up trash bags for collecting litter during
their visit. Participants are asked to leave the trash bags at the ramp
entrance for collection.
All participants and volunteers are encouraged to bring leather gloves,
water, snacks, and sunscreen. Please wear appropriate clothing, such as
closed-toe shoes and hats.
National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer
effort for public lands. On National Public Lands Day last year, more
than 200,000 volunteers celebrated at more than 2,500 public land sites
across the United States.
Volunteers that participate at Coquina Beach, Frisco Bathhouse, and the
Ocracoke Day Use Area will receive a Federal fee-free coupon (while
supplies last). A fee-free coupon provides the volunteer one day of
free entry to any participating federal public land, no matter the
agency. Each coupon is good for one day of entrance fee or day use fees
until Saturday, September 28, 2019. At some public lands, this can
include accompanying passengers in a car. The coupons cannot be used
for parking fees, camping, tours, or concessions.
