FALL BEACH/RIVER SWEEP SATURDAY

September 18 @ 10:30 am

The Daufuskie Island Conservancy and the Haig Point Environmental Committee will collaborate with the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium for the annual statewide Beach Sweep/River Sweep on Daufuskie for September 18, 2021 @ 10:30a.m. and volunteers are asked to gather at 10:30a.m. at one of two locations on the Island:

Beach Road Gazebo at Bloody Point
Calibogue Beach Club at Haig Point

We will distribute supplies, assign teams and clean up areas along the Calibogue Beach and the Atlantic Ocean Beach from Haig Point to Bloody Point. Refreshments will be provided. The time will coincide with Low Tide. Volunteers are advised to wear hard sole shoes & gloves, bring water bottles, wear sunscreen, hat or sun visor.

Only approved vehicles are permitted on the beach as several turtle nests will remain.

Please join us in this effort to clean up the shoreline around Daufuskie where possible. Aquatic debris is a danger to our wildlife, our safety and our economy. Fish, birds, turtles and other animals often mistake trash for food. As a result, animals get entangled in or ingest litter with deadly results. Daufuskie Island is so fortunate to have such a large variety of aquatic life in our waters.

To volunteer and for further information, please contact Karen Rafferty at
