KIDS IN KAYAKS
Kids in Kayaks has a simple goal: to get every middle school child in Beaufort County out kayaking. These programs are run several times a year and offer, in addition to kayaking, hands-on learning about the local culture and eco-system. The Outside Foundation provides scholarships for student's unable to afford the program, made possible through your donations!
WATERWAY CLEAN UPS
Through grant funds from Beaufort County Public Works, The Outside Foundation organizes several water way clean-ups throughout Beaufort County each year. Volunteers scour for trash and debris along banks and between grasses. 97 percent of trash collected in prior clean-ups has been recycled. Get involved in our next clean up!
COMMUNITY BASED RECYCLING PROGRAM
By constructing an oyster shell recycling collection site and organizing a shell collection route to Hilton Head restaurants, we have recycled over 27 tons of shell! The ORRBI (Oyster Recycling and Reef Building Initiative) Program facilitates the collection and bagging of shells and the construction of new oyster beds in local waterways. Look out for regular volunteer opportunities to bag shell and build reefs.
