NCBBA Operation Beach Respect this Saturday

The North Carolina Beach Buggy Association will be sponsoring a beach cleanup this Saturday 6/13. If you plan to use one of the NPS access ramps please stop and visit with the NCBBA volunteer at the entrance. This is the 30th year for NCBBA's Operation Beach Respect and they were recognized for this outstanding service by Superintendent Hallac and assistant Mark Dowdle at the recent annual NCBBA meeting.

NCBBA also awarded a number of scholarships to local students at the same meeting. The scholarships are renewable for four years and there have been a great number of very deserving recipients over the many years of the scholarship program.

The NCBBA appreciates all support and is happy to, in turn, support our local communities and promote good stewardship of our beaches.

Note, it is not your beach. I'll work on the beaches you can't drive on.

NCBBA - great organization. We've been a member since 2003. If we were there we would certainly participate in the clean up.

It absolutely all our beach. Which is not exactly what you said, redundant , or you could have just said clean the beaches. Come on you wouldn't have let me slide.

If you guys can quit arguing semantics and stop by to help it would be great. People can walk on and drive on SOME of OUR beaches!

Thanks. I look forward to it. Really great volunteer works being done here by the NCBBA. Also a pleasure to see the NPS has and will join us, and appreciates the effort, as evidenced by the recent announcement of NPS-sponsored events this month. Clapping smiley

The "our" also extends to future generations. Congress specifically intended to preserve the flora and fauna. While I didn't like everything in the ORV rule I thought the premise of the intent was correct.
Never forget recreational use by today's visitors is not the primary mission or intent of CHNS. Recreating here doesn't give anyone (myself included) more ownership of the Seashore.


"Except for certain portions of the area, deemed to be especially adaptable for recreational uses, particularly swimming, boating, sailing, fishing, and other recreational activities of similar nature, which shall be developed for such uses as needed, the said area shall be permanently reserved as a primitive wilderness and no development of the project or plan for the convenience of visitors shall be undertaken which would be incompatible with the preservation of the unique flora and fauna or the physiographic conditions now prevailing in this area."

Enjoy the fellowship of cleaning up the beaches. I have a long term commitment off the island this weekend. But rest assured I will continue to pick up as much plastic as I can carry every single time I go to the beach.

Again, travel safely. I am sorry that you will be unable to participate. Agree that Fellowship is the best word to describe our residents and visitors to CHNSRA, who share a singular goal of fair and open access, regardless of mode(s) of travel; regardless of the choice of recreational activity; just making sure visits to our CHNRSA are peaceful and enjoyable.

Pulled a bag off ramp 38, by far the worst of the Ramos we went over. Didn't even fill 1/2 a bag between 25 and 30. Fire is still burning north of town.
