Historical Note

The Dunes of Dare Garden Club was founded in 1967 and is fully affiliated with the Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc. and the National Council of State Garden Clubs, Inc. The Club's main purpose is to provide a nonprofit, philanthropic and educational association for the members and to encourage environmental improvement through civic development, beautification and the protection and conservation of natural resources. Early projects included the cleaning of an unlicensed local dump established in Nags Head Woods, generating awareness of garbage can accountability and refuse shelters along Highway 12, and landscaping the prayer garden adajacent to the popular ice cream stand, the Circus Tent.

In 1980, the club published the book Wildflowers on the Outer Banks: Kitty Hawk to Cape Hatteras. The book was begun in 1974 and was published by the University of North Carolina Press. This collection includes the original sketches used in the book.

Today the Dunes of Dare Garden Club serves Dare County by providing information on recycling and as a partner in the creation of the Outer Banks Arboretum and Teaching Garden.
