Cape Fear Arch

A Collaborative Voice for Nature

The Cape Fear Arch is a special geologic feature stretching from Cape Lookout, NC to Cape Romain, SC that contains nationally significant animal and plant communities.

Created in 2006, the Cape Fear Arch Conservation Collaboration is a partnership of organizations and individuals interested in protecting this region while balancing the needs of man and nature.

Its mission is to develop and implement a community conservation vision to build awareness, protection and stewardship of the region’s important natural resources.

Volunteer Water Monitoring

The Waccamaw River Volunteer Monitoring Project is a volunteer-based program. Volunteers trained in using environmental testing equipment sample ten sites along the whole length of the river in the state of South Carolina. Volunteers work as a part of one of the five teams that sample all the sites. Most of the coordination of the team activity is done by the team itself and team captain helps to keep all the members of the team in the loop. Volunteer Monitoring Coordinator makes sure that all the quality assurance and quality control procedures are being followed according to the guidelines provided by United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA).
