Outer Banks Forever, the official nonprofit partner of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, recently shared their upcoming 2023 projects and events, and invited folks to provide feedback on the organization via a communications survey, in a January update.
The survey is focused on Outer Banks Forever’s communications with the public, which include monthly e-newsletters, blog posts, and social media posts, and the short survey is available online. The survey also asks for feedback on online learning opportunities, like ranger talks or sea turtle nest excavations, as well as information on the organization’s Cape Hatteras National Seashore initiatives.
