WELCOME

Welcome to Masonboro.org! Our mission is to protect public access, promote responsible use and preserve the traditions of Masonboro Island. We work to keep the traditions of Masonboro Island -- surfing, camping, fishing, boating, paddleboarding -- open to you, your kids and even your pets for years to come.

Since 2009, hundreds of our grassroots, "red shirt" volunteers have removed and recycled tons of trash off of Masonboro Island during the annual 4th of July Celebration. In 2013 we launched the Masonboro Island Explorer [ILX] program: an educational, science-based field trip to Masonboro Island for 50 fifth-grade students in New Hanover County. This year we are expanding this program to over 450 students.

Our success has come from the wide support we have received from the community. We are always looking for volunteers to help us with our programs so please consider joining today and becoming a part of this new Masonboro tradition.
