What Is Beach Sweep?
This year's Beach Sweep has been rescheduled due to Hurricane Florence for Saturday, October 20. Interested volunteers should meet at the Fort Moultrie Visitor Center at 9:00 am.
Beach Sweep has been Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie National Historical Park's largest one-day volunteer environmental stewardship event for 30 years! Each September, hundreds of volunteers help clear Sullivan’s Island beaches of harmful debris, protecting our local community and its rich natural resources.
Our event is part of the South Carolina Beach Sweep/River Sweep event. For more information on South Carolina's Beach Sweep click here.
We hope to see you there!
