Haulover Park Coastal Cleanup
On the first Saturday of every month, volunteers can assist the Haulover Park staff and beautify this coastal park to keep our ocean ecosystem healthy. Volunteers will also get an opportunity to learn about their impact on local wildlife.
This volunteer opportunity is made possible with the support of our community partner, Miami-Dade County Sea Turtle Conservation Program (STCP). The STCP works to protect our sea turtle nests on 19 miles of Miami beaches during nesting season (March-October). STCP is committed to protecting our coastal and ocean ecosystems year-round, and educating the public on best conservation practices. Join STCP team members at our monthly coastal cleanups to learn more about the endangered sea turtle species that utilize our local ecosystems.
