Kitty Hawk Kites is partnering with Surfrider Foundation Outer Banks Chapter to host a socially-distant cleanup at Jockey’s Ridge State Park on Saturday, April 24.

Participants will meet outside the Kitty Hawk Kites Hang Gliding School at 302 Carolista Drive in Nags Head. Check-in times are from 10 a.m. to noon. Upon arrival, each participant will fill out a waiver and will be outfitted with gloves, trash bags, and pickers. Drawings begin at 1 p.m. for prizes for the most unique items found.

Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves, and beaches. Surfrider’s Outer Banks Chapter, founded in 1993, includes more than 100 members who are all dedicated to preserving the environment of our home from Corolla to Frisco. They believe that the more people enjoy the beach, the more they’ll work to protect its culture and ecology.

Over the past two decades, Outer Banks Surfrider’s Chapter has tackled issues such as water quality and offshore energy while still giving back to the community through scholarship programs, events, and beach cleanups.
