Vacasa and Outer Banks Forever are partnering to help protect and enhance Cape Hatteras National Seashore – and we need your help! We are currently working with the park to fund a new way for you and your family to experience the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse through our Pathways to Your National Parks project.
This week to celebrate National Park Week, Vacasa will match your donation to make this project a reality until we reach our goal of $7,500!
That means that your gift will double to help us raise $15,000 total and close the final gap in funding so that we can start construction on the new multi-use path later this year!
Your New Lighthouse Experience
The new Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Pathway will enhance the experience for everyone who visits the lighthouse, starting with improvements to the entrance.
Traveling alongside Lighthouse Road safely separated from traffic, you will have a chance to experience and learn about the ecology and wildlife that is unique to the Outer Banks.
As the ocean comes into view, you will stop at a new educational plaza and Old Lighthouse Beach where you will learn about the history of surfing and water sports that made Hatteras Island a premier water sports destination on the East Coast.
If you continue to the lighthouse, you will travel alongside the path that the lighthouse itself took on its historic 2,900-foot journey to safety back in 1999. There will be opportunities for you to stop along this route to learn why moving this iconic structure was necessary and, more importantly, how this incredible feat of engineering succeeded.
Help us make this project a reality today with a tax-deductible donation that will be matched by our friends a Vacasa! Click below to see how your family or business will be recognized to show our appreciation for your generosity.
