Enjoy a guided morning stroll in the outdoors through the trails and beaches of Blowing Rocks Preserve to collect debris that has been washed ashore or left behind. Your contribution helps to beautify our beaches and prevent wildlife disasters. Volunteers will be instructed by preserve staff upon arrival and given collection supplies.

Prepare to spend time in the sun walking on uneven terrain, and keep in mind your feet always have the potential to get wet. Don’t forget to pack plenty of reusable water bottles to stay hydrated!

FREE volunteer opportunity! Light to moderate physical activity. Advance registration is preferred. Recommended ages 8+, and all youth under the age of 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
