Volunteer Beach Cleanup at Coquina Beach Set for April 17
Cape Hatteras National Seashore will host a drop-in volunteer beach cleanup effort at the Coquina Beach public access on Bodie Island on Saturday, April 17 from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Volunteers should meet Seashore staff at the bathhouse. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Concurrent with the Seashore beach cleanup event, North Carolina Beach Buggy Association (NCBBA) members will be stationed at off-road vehicle ramps where visitors can obtain trash bags for collecting litter. Participants are asked to deposit the trash bags at ramp entrances for collection when leaving the beach.

All beach cleanup volunteers are encouraged to bring leather gloves, water, snacks, and sunscreen. Please wear appropriate clothing, such as hats and closed-toed shoes.
Future beach cleanup events are scheduled for June 12 and Sept. 18, 2021.
