Is a community-based and supported organization whose members and volunteers are dedicated to protecting this fragile ecosystem. As a non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, we are not beholden to government or industry influences. We focus on one thing, what is best for the waters of the Crystal Coast.
Our organization is about protecting the water quality in our sounds and along our coast and helping to achieve our goal of obtaining a healthy environment for the citizens of Eastern North Carolina, one that is free of the devastating impacts of all forms of water pollution.
Our success is heavily dependent on grants, donations and individual financial support along with an amazing cadre of volunteers. Contributions are tax deductible.
Join us today and help make a difference in protecting and maintaining the environmental quality of our
beautiful Crystal Coast.
PASSIONATE PEOPLE NEEDED:
The watersheds that make up the Bogue, Back, and Core Sounds are comprised of many small, very old towns and cities, historic sites, the Cape Lookout Lighthouse, recreation areas and resorts.
The rich heritage and history of the watersheds, along with the allure of recreation and the easy living associated with coastal North Carolina, make these areas a magnet for people. Add the excitement that comes with also being on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean with its amazing beaches, and you have the complete package.
The quest for the very things that the sounds and the ocean have to offer also becomes problematic for the fragile ecosystems that are the Bogue, Back, and Core Sounds and Atlantic Coast. More people, more development, more strain on the water systems, more pollution all come together to create a perfect storm of potential harmful impacts to these waters and our way of life.
