About the Northeastern NC Coastal Research and Environmental Education Fund:
The endowment was established by Bill and Peggy Birkemeier earlier this year to support charitable endeavors in the fields of coastal scientific research and environmental education in North Carolina's northeastern counties (outlined above).
Bill, retired from the US Army Corps of Engineers, and Peggy, retired from NCCF, both love and appreciate the challenges of the coastal environment.
