Going Green Publications
Cape Fear’s green living magazine
Read about us in Wilma! —Wilmington's magazine for women.
Thank you, Ben Steelman, for our publisher’s Port City Profile in the January 1 StarNews.
Cape Fear’s Going Green is a publication serving as the premiere guide for eco-friendly resources and lifestyles in the Lower Cape Fear River basin of North Carolina. This free magazine covers topics designed to help you make choices that save you money, contribute to healthier living, and assist you in being kind to our planet.
No matter what your interest in sustainability—stormwater management, green building, or alternate energy; using native plants, protecting our wetlands, or recycling—Going Green has information you can use.
Spring/Summer Issue of Cape Fear’s Going Green Celebrates Pelicans
Read our Spring/Summer 2015 issue for a rare behind-the-scenes look at Brown Pelican breeding grounds, off limits to the public. Learn how scientists use banding techniques to study birds, and find out how you can contribute to what we know by reporting banded birds you see. Read how a UNCW graduate student is using cast-off feathers and eggshells to learn more about mercury in our water and air. From Touch Tank Tuesdays to Wilmington Weed Warriors, we trust you’ll find information you can use.
Also in this issue: page 14 offers a handy listing of all the books our environmental book club is reading this year. We invite you to visit on July 7, for our discussion of Sex, Economy, Freedom & Community, by Wendell Berry.
