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.

River Festivals in WilmingtonWinter Issue of Cape Fear’s Going Green Celebrates River Festivals

StriperFest, LakeFest, paddles, clean-ups, and more: read our Winter 2015/2016 issue to learn about Cape Fear River Watch activities that help your whole family discover our local rivers and the wildlife that depends on them. Also in this issue: the case against pesticides, with ideas for reducing your exposure. Read about Pope Francis’ encyclical and his ideas about protecting the environment. Don’t miss the photo contest winners on pages 14-15—you may recognize the work of a friend or neighbor. And for those cold, rainy days, we offer an overview of environmentally-themed video games.
