Jacob Street Beach at Nags Head. (Town of Nags Head)

The Morgan Duke Conservation Society is delighted to announce that it has adopted Jacob Street Beach in Nags Head through the Outer Banks Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. Morgan Duke Conservation Society is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization located in upstate New York.

The organization explores locations across the country, partnering with state, local and national parks offering assistance with numerous projects, including litter disposal along trails in a forest recreation area and cleanup beaches along the Atlantic Ocean.

James Sullivan, president of the Morgan Duke Conservation Society, said it was fantastic that as an organization we could step in and help clean up an Outer Banks beach. More and more trash is being dumped by the ocean, and the Outer Banks are dealing with the effects of the weather bringing in marine debris.

The Morgan Duke Conservation Society allows individuals, families, businesses, students, and anyone else to volunteer and visit the beach to remove marine debris and litter. Volunteers should inform James Sullivan, President of the Morgan Duke Conservation Society, and the Outer Banks Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation before visiting the beach. A volunteer must complete a data sheet of the Surfrider Foundation Outer Banks Chapter.

The Morgan Duke Conservation Society has other places it has partnered with to help dispose of trash at two federal national park sites in the Outer Banks, North Carolina.

Anyone can drop by their Welcome Center to pick up a few copies of our brochures or visit their website to find many of our volunteer openings.

If anyone is interested in volunteering with the Morgan Duke Conservation Society or has any questions, please contact James Sullivan at [email protected]
