Check out our Earth Day video for ways to celebrate Earth Day on the Outer Banks.


Pick Up Trash On The Beach

Help keep our beaches clean! Today, start a new habit! Bring a recyclable bag with you to the beach and try to pick up at least 10 pieces of trash. Obviously the more you pick up the better!


Explore Our Local Parks

Visiting the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, the Wildlife Refuge, Dowdy Park, any of the local lighthouses, and so much more is a great way to spend Earth Day on the OBX!


Plant Something

The OBX is full of great places to pick up a plant! The Elizabethan Gardens has a beautiful, local greenhouse. Nature’s Harmony is a beautiful, local nursery located in Manns Harbor with the prettiest plants that’ll help you celebrate Earth Day in the best way!


Enjoy The Beauty Around You

With beautiful open beaches, expansive sound accesses, and stunning natural wooded parks, there’s no excuse to not be outside and love on the earth a little today! Enjoy the beauty of the Outer Banks and get outside, get involved, and love your Mother Earth!
