Coastal Report 4 (Sam)

Volunteers are sought to meet with staff from the NC Coastal Federation and Hammocks Beach State Park for an organized clean-up of Jones Island, a small island in the White Oak River. In addition to picking up trash, volunteers will also record data on the types and quantities of debris collected. This will help to identify the sources of debris and focus educational efforts.

The clean-up runs from 10am to 1pm on Tuesday, June 5. Boat transportation will be provided. Volunteers are asked to sign up at nccoast.org/events and meet at the Hammocks Beach State Park maintenance area at 9:45am to meet the park boats.

Please wear weather appropriate clothing that may get wet and dirty, and bring work gloves. Closed-toe shoes are required. Trash collection supplies, snacks, water, sunscreen and bug spray will be provided.
