Going Green Publications
Cape Fear’s green living magazine
Read about us in the February 2011 issue of 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.
Read the Winter/Spring 2013 Issue Online
Supporting wildlife is our theme for Spring, whether your interest in nature favors fish or fowl. Learn how to attract bluebirds to your own backyard. See how a local catch-and-release fishing tournament gathers scientific information to help our local fish populations swim upstream once again (see “Why We Should Value the Cape Fear River”). And don’t miss the winning photos from Wild Bird & Garden’s Nature Photo Contest. For those looking for a place to volunteer, we’ve printed our online directory of local environmental organizations. New this issue: we’ve added a classified section, and a recipe page devoted to dishes you can prepare with local produce in season.
Cape Fear’s Going Green Environmental Book Club
Come join our environmental book club! We meet the first Tuesday evening of the month at Old Books on Front Street in downtown Wilmington. We read both recent work and some of the classics. Coming up: May 14 we'll discuss Soaring with Fidel: An Osprey Odyssey from Cape Cod to Cuba and Beyond by local author David Gessner!
