The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches, for all people, through a powerful activist network.

Annual Dune Replenishment 2023

Jan. 28th

Come join us for our 9th annual Cape Fear Surfrider Foundation Dune Restoration event with the help of the Town of Carolina Beach using their curbside collected resident Christmas trees. We also will be hosting a beach cleanup as well. This event is always a great way to kick off the year by helping to stop erosion of our dunes and reduce spending on beach re-nourishment, and also helps to rebuild natural habitats, protect ocean front property, and divert old trees from the landfill. Coffee and donuts will be provided to help replenish our amazing volunteers for all their hard work! ☕️🍩
Please do not bring your tree as the Town of Carolina Beach provides the trees and we are only permitted to use a certain number for the event. If you want to recycle your tree via the county, please check out the post on @newhanoverco for drop off locations. ♻️
What to Bring: Shovel, tape measure & scissors
