Mr. Kemp Burdette, Riverkeeper, Cape Fear River

 

 

 

 

General Membership Meeting Speaker

 

 

 

23 March

 

 

 

Kemp Burdette is the Cape Fear Riverkeeper and he works to protect and improve the water quality of the Lower Cape Fear River.

He is a Wilmington native who grew up exploring the waterways and swamps that make our area so special.

Kemp has lived and traveled around the world as a US Navy search and rescue swimmer, a Fulbright Scholar, and a Peace Corps volunteer.

At home and abroad Kemp has always been interested in the way humans interact with their environment.


His academic background is in geology and history, graduating from UNCW magna cum laude with honors, and he holds a Master of Public Administration (MPA), also from UNCW.

He also holds a certificate in Nonprofit Management from Duke University.

 

 

Cape Fear River has its origins by way of the Haw River near Greensboro, NC, which joins the Deep River southwest of Raleigh at Mermaid Point, the confluence that begins the Cape Fear (formerly Clarendon) River.

From Mermaid Point, Cape Fear River meanders through the coastal plain before discharging its Piedmont-muddied waters into the Atlantic Ocean at the rate of some 9,000 cubic feet per second.

The largest river contained entirely within North Carolina’s boundary, Cape Fear River is also NC’s only major coastal river that discharges directly into the Great Ocean; all other rivers discharge into a sound or a bay. 


Kemp Burdette, Riverkeeper, will provide observations and insights he has garnered through more than three decades of exploring habitats within the Cape Fear eco-region.
