Wrightsville Beach Access 33 has been permanently saved!

The Town of Wrightsville Beach, Murchison/Gornto family, and the Cape Fear Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation worked out an agreement that provides a permanent easement at the one of the Town's main beach access locations. Residents and visitors have used this access for over 40 years.

As part of the agreement, the Cape Fear Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation committed to contributing $15,000 to the purchase of the access. In order to accomplish this the chapter is asking for $33 for 33 to help chip away at the large financial commitment toward maintaining this public beach access. Contributions can be sent directly via paypal.
(just type in capefearchapter@surfrider.org to email box)

Thanks to the Cape Fear Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation for stepping up when the town failed to act to protect Beach Access 33. It would have been a serious loss to the public had it been closed as planned. Now is a god time for all those who support public access to step up with a contribution, large or small, to help pay for what we all benefit from.
