Calling all Hatteras Island teens!

 

The National Park Service invites all Hatteras Island uprising 7th -12th graders to join in some exciting summer volunteer experiences to:

  • Assist in staffing the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on the monthly full moon and weekly moonlight climbs;
  • Help a ranger teach visitors about the creatures of the sound and sea at a soundside seining program; and
  • Join other teens in field projects that will aid in protecting the seashore.

This is a great opportunity to get involved with education and protection of the unique natural and cultural resources on this very special and dynamic island where you live!

There will be a kick-off youth group meeting at the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Double Keeper’s Quarters on Thursday, July 2 at 7:30 pm. Call 252-995-4474 x25 to let the park know that you plan to attend the meeting and are interested in volunteering. You must bring a parent with you to the meeting. If you have questions, call 252-995-4474 x24 or e-mail Park Ranger Laura Sturtz at Laura_Sturtz@nps.gov.
