The Coastal Studies Institute is seeking community volunteers for the Roanoke Island Trails Program (RITP) starting with a kick-off meeting at CSI on January 15 at 5 pm. This program, which is being undertaken in partnership with AmeriCorps Conservation Trust for North Carolina, is a community-led initiative focused on engaging residents and visitors with the outdoors via a system of biking trails and walking paths on Roanoke Island. Educational signage and plaques will highlight the unique identities of each community and provide information on various cultural, historical, and ecological features of the island.

Volunteers are needed to build a motivated and diverse group that will breathe life into this project from Wanchese to Manteo. The project kick-off meeting provides the first opportunity to get involved in the project process. All interested volunteers should attend! 

If you cannot attend but are interested in volunteering, contact Erin at (252)475-5409 or
