Outer Banks Forever

If you’re interested in volunteering with us, please contact Jessica Green at (252) 423-4545 or jessicagreen@obxforever.org.

  • Office volunteers: Help is needed in our office (located at Wright Brothers National Memorial) with projects like data entry and sending thank you letters.
  • Event volunteers: We have several events we are participating in this year. Volunteers are needed to help plan, promote, and staff our table at events in the parks and in the community.
  • Photographers: We’re looking for local photographers to help us build a bank of great visitor photos to use online and in our print materials. You can donate use of current photos or help us by volunteering at events. Your photo credit will be used on all online and print uses of your photos.
