Current Volunteer Needs:
Rodanthe Beach Cleanup: March 16
As you may have seen in the news, an unoccupied house collapsed into the ocean in Rodanthe on Monday, March 13, creating a large debris field along Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
Our national park staff will be hosting a beach cleanup in Rodanthe on March 16, and we are helping coordinate volunteers. If you would like to assist with this effort, please sign up using our volunteer form below.
Rodanthe Beach Cleanup
If you aren’t able to attend during the designated times, you are welcome to clean up the beach at other times with your own supplies. Park staff asks that you place garbage bags and debris well above the high tide line to ensure the items don’t get washed back into the ocean.They will be patrolling the beaches over the next several days to pick up these items.
Park Day Beach Cleanup at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site: Saturday, April 15
Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, in partnership with American Battlefield Trust and Outer Banks Forever, will host a beach cleanup at Etheridge Point, the park’s sound side beach access in celebration of Park Day on Saturday, April 15! Volunteers can meet at the Etheridge Point beach at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site at 10 a.m. From Park Headquarters (1401 National Park Drive, Manteo, NC, 27954), turn on Pear Pad Road and follow that one-half mile until the road ends at Etheridge Point. Volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in a short presentation about the Civil War Battle of Roanoke Island and learn about the nearby location of a former Civil War camp. Volunteers will help remove litter from the beach at Etheridge Point. As time allows, the group may move to nearby shoreline areas for litter removal. All volunteers are encouraged to wear thick-soled footwear, gloves, and comfortable work clothing. Bring water, snacks, and a bag lunch. Feel free to invite your friends, family members, neighbors, or coworkers to join you! For more information, contact Tom Avery at email@example.com.
