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.

4th Quarter Meeting

  • Holly Shelter Game Land Depot 7471 Shaw Highway Rocky Point, NC, 28457 United States (map)

For the November 16th Meeting, John Carpenter has arranged for Arch members to participate in the annual NCWRC Red-cockaded Woodpecker Walk.
We will spend the day walking through upland longleaf pine stands that are scheduled to be burned next year while looking for new RCW cavity trees and updating the status of existing ones. This will be a great opportunity for people to get out of the office and experience a day in one of southeastern NC’s best examples of the longleaf pine ecosystem.
Participants should bring a lunch and expect to walk on uneven terrain for several hours. It will also be a good idea to bring water and shoes that can get a little wet.
We will meet at the Holly Shelter Depot (7471 Shaw Hwy, Rocky Point, NC 28457 - promptly at 8 am.
After a brief introduction, we will break into groups and venture out into the game land.  If you plan to come, please RSVP to John Carpenter ( by next Wednesday (11/9) so we’ll know how many groups to prepare for. If you need to leave early, feel free to drive yourself, otherwise we will try to carpool to and from the depot as much as possible.
