FALL BEACH/RIVER SWEEP
September 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Daufuskie Island Conservancy and Haig Point will collaborate with the South
Carolina Sea Grant Consortium for the annual statewide Beach Sweep/River Sweep on
Daufuskie for September 17, 2022 @ 10:00a.m. and volunteers are asked to gather 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. 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 turtle nests will remain.
Please join us and volunteer in this effort to clean up the shoreline around Daufuskie
where possible. Families are especially welcome! This is a major annual event on Daufuskie to protect our island and wildlife environment.
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
firstname.lastname@example.org for Beach Road Gazebo ; Jeff Garwood at email@example.com for Haig Point.
