Volunteers are needed to help clean up roadside debris on Ocracoke Island

The cleanup is planned to take place from 10 a.m.to 3 p.m. Thursday, March 26.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore is organizing the drop-in roadside cleanup of a 2-mile section of N.C. 12 that has debris left behind by last year’s Hurricane Dorian.

Volunteers can meet at the Ocracoke pony pen parking area to check in and can join at any time during the event.

Organizers suggest that volunteers bring leather gloves, sunscreen, lunch and snacks as well as wear appropriate clothing, including closed-toe shoes. Trash bags will be provided.

Those younger than 18 must have their parent or legal guardian with them to sign paperwork.
