Kure Beach, NC – Show the ocean some love, meet new friends and rid local beaches of trash and marine debris during the 2012 North Carolina Big Sweep. The N.C. Aquarium at Fort Fisher will again organize a volunteer group for the event on Saturday, September 29, to make a big difference.
Plastics, trash and other marine debris threaten aquatic environments and wildlife. The annual Big Sweep event helps clean-up a growing problem and keeps our beaches beautiful and safe. Last year 537 volunteers cleaned up approximately 1,235 pounds of trash in New Hanover County.
Those interested need only commit several hours of time. Volunteers who register with the Aquarium will meet at 9 a.m. and will travel to a nearby beach to collect trash. Bags will be provided.
