Cape Fear Surfrider Seeks Volunteers this Thursday

Posted on

What: “only rain down the storm drain marking project! ”
Storm drain marking project with the City of Wilmington Stormwater Services and New Hanover County Soil and Water. We will paint “only rain down the drain” on stormwater drains. This will allow the participants and the general populace to learn the motto of ‘only rain down the storm drain’ and how pollutants that enter the storm drain system impact our local water quality. We also have door hangers we distribute to assist with community education.

When and where:
This Thursday June 16th, 8:30 am. We will meet at the intersection of Brookwood Ave and Metts Ave, off of Market Street. A little before the Port City Java if you’re headed towards downtown. We’ll have parking passes to place inside cars, which should be parked on Metts. We’ll also have safety vests.  Carpooling is highly encouraged. We will mark between 15-16 drains, so we will need between 8-12 volunteers. Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes, bring a water bottle, hat, and sunscreen. The whole process should take ~2-2.5 hours.
