Twice a year, OBPA is asked to help pick up trash along N.C. Highway 12 from Buxton Village, north to Ramp 38 in Avon and along the ocean beach from Ramp 38 south towards Buxton Village. This cleanup is an effort by the N.C. Outer Banks Scenic Byways Committee to cleanup the beaches and highways on the Outer Banks. OBPA is asking for volunteers to help is this cleanup effort on Saturday, April 16, 2011. Volunteers will assemble at the Haulover (Canadian Hole) parking lot at 9:00 AM. OBPA, NCBBA and CHAC and other access organizations have participated in this event since 2003.  Help us continue to lead the way in helping our island community’s environment look it’s best!
