  • Collaborations Lead to Help for Troubled Creeks: A young woman’s idea to build a rain garden to help two impaired coastal creeks has now become a collaborative effort among two universities, two nonprofit groups, a local business and the city. “This project is important to the City of Wilmington as there is a major push to address the health of Hewletts and Bradley creeks,” said Roger Shew, a professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, one of the partners. The tidal creeks are on the federal “black list” of sorts for polluted waters, known as the 303(d) list. Hewletts and Bradley creeks are on the list because they’ve been polluted to the point where harvesting oysters and clams is no longer allowed because of high levels of bacteria. The culprit is polluted stormwater runoff, the number one cause of water quality impairment along the N.C. coast. For more information, click here.

  • North Carolina Azalea Festival SEAHAWK SWEEP: Get involved in North Carolina's Azalea Festival Seahawk Sweep in preparation of Wilmington's largest event, The Azalea Festival, the following week (April 9-13). Together as a community, we can make a difference in Wilmington, NC by cleaning up trash in various parts of the city, especially downtown. The garbage collected will be separated between trash and recyclables, at which point both will be weighed in order to determine how much of each was collected. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing how this community can make a difference for other cities to emulate! For more information, click here.
