MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. (WNCT) — An event in Carteret County this Saturday is aiming to clean up some of the beaches along the Crystal Coast.

Litter Free Land and Sea are partnering with several organizations and towns to host a beach clean-up during “International Coastal Cleanup.” They’re looking for volunteers for the event to help keep Carteret County beautiful.

“We have a lot of people that visit our beaches every year, we’re just coming off of a really large holiday weekend. So we want to make sure that we put everything back the way we found it,” said Michele Querry, Carteret County Director of Economic Development.

The clean-up will take place in Atlantic Beach, Pine Knoll Shores and Emerald Isle from 9-10 am. Click here to register.
