Turtle volunteer training

Training classes for Topsail Turtle Project volunteers have been scheduled for April 2 from 1 to 3 p.m. and April 8 from 6 to 8 p.m. Training will be held at the Surf City Welcome Center (next to Daddy Mac’s.) Project volunteers walk a short section of beach (about one mile) one or more days a week beginning May 1 and continuing through the end of August. Under the direction of an area coordinator volunteers patrol set sections of the shoreline (finishing no later than 7:30 a.m.) looking for turtle tracks and signs of a nesting. Everybody is welcome, even those not sure they can commit to a day each week since there is always a need for subs and for volunteers to work into the hatching season sitting with nests at night. For more information contact Director of Beach Operations Terry Meyer at topsailseaturtle@aol.com.

 

Health survey

Pender County is partnering with a number of local organizations to conduct a Community Health Assessment.

Surveyors will be conducting randomly selected door-to-door surveys to get resident’s opinions on the most pressing health needs in the community. Surveyors will be in Pender County communities March 26 through 29 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and can be identified by a name badge.
