The North Carolina Coastal Federation is looking for volunteers to help pick up shoreline trash at Morris Landing Clean Water Preserve in Holly Ridge on Saturday.

From 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., volunteers can take part in the federation's statewide 2019 Coastal Cleanup Kickoff.

The federation is partnering with the North Carolina Coastal Reserve and Keep Onslow Beautiful for this project.

"Last year we were able to collect 2,560 pounds of debris, 90% of which we were able to recycle," said Ted Wilgis, coastal education coordinator for the federation. "We're looking forward to partnering with Keep Onslow Beautiful and the North Carolina Coastal Reserve again for this cleanup and highlighting the federation's Lost Fishing Gear Recovery Project supported by the North Carolina General Assembly."
