Coastal Ambassador Training: Advocates in Action
We invite anyone interested in volunteering with the North Carolina Coastal Federation to attend our orientation session from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 27 at our office and education center located at 309 W. Salisbury St. Wrightsville Beach, NC 28480.
The federation builds public and political support for compatible land and water uses that protect coastal water quality, critical habitat and public access. We seek laws, appropriations, policies and permit decisions that are in the best interest of the North Carolina coast and the communities that depend on it. This month our new and returning volunteers along with coastal ambassadors will hear from our coastal advocate, Kerri Allen, on the different issues plaguing our coast and what we can do to help
The Southeast Coastal Ambassadors are a special group of volunteers that serve as representatives of the federation. The program is designed to be fun and interactive, allowing volunteers to socialize with one another while learning more about the work of the federation and our coastal environment. Volunteers qualify to be a Southeast Coastal Ambassador when they have attended at least three trainings and participated in a minimum of three federation volunteer events per year. Those who wish to join the Coastal Ambassadors group are required to attend an orientation training session held at 5:30 p.m. before the evening program meetings. This program is for people 16 years or older.
