My dear friends, meine lieben Freunde, queridos amigos:

Let’s put the sun and fun back into responsibility! Help us clean up Miami-Dade’s beaches and shorelines, just like we did the previous years! I will be a site coordinator again and would love for as many of you as possible to show up! Invite friends and family, too. You can simply share this link with everyone you know!! It’s a great, great opportunity to do something for our city, our beaches, and especially raise environmental awareness: EVERY helping hand counts and every effort is worth a lot. Children any age are welcome to join, too! (Linus and Lia are ready to roll! :)) Registration is required to participate.

“Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing.” — Thomas Jefferson

Join us for the world’s largest, one-day volunteer effort for our oceans and waterways, and show your commitment to reducing marine debris, along with millions of volunteers from across the globe!

Spearheaded globally by the Ocean Conservancy, VolunteerCleanup.org organizes Miami-Dade’s local participation in this annual event with 50+ simultaneous shoreline cleanups around the county and is made possible by the generous support of our presenting sponsors Covanta and Boucher Brothers, with additional support from Blackstone Charitable Foundation, The Brady Hunter Foundation, Benjamin & Gloria Joannou, Jr. Family Conservation Fund, City of Miami Beach, The Miami Foundation, Loud And Live, and Miami-Dade County RER-DERM

We will provide garbage bags, gloves, data collection cards, and a souvenir tote bag with this year’s marine animal theme, a Seahorse.  Community Service hours also provided!

Registration is required to participate.

  • Download the Ocean Conservancy’s CleanSwell app to participate in the Citizen Science activity to log, tally and measure the impact of your cleanup.  It is easier and more fun than using paper data cards
  • Dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear. This is a beach site, and you should preferably wear closed-toed shoes/sneakers or water shoes.
  • Sunglasses, hat, and sunscreen are recommended.
  • If you have your own reusable working or gardening type gloves, bring them. We will be providing gloves but cannot guarantee they will be in your size.
  • Please bring water in a reusable container. Let’s reduce waste and refuse single-use disposable plastic water bottles.
  • Some volunteers like to use a bucket during a cleanup. Ask your local Chinese, Burger or Bakery/Donut shop if they get food service items in 5-gallon buckets that they would like to donate for use during your cleanup!
