Important: Each individual participant must be age 18 and up.

We will boat across Biscayne Bay to Elliott Key. We will anchor in waist-deep water and wade through water to reach the shoreline. Close-toed shoes and comfort in the water are required. We’ll remove debris for 2-3 hours while capturing data, then weigh the debris, load the boats and return to the Visitor Center. This event will happen rain or shine, though local weather conditions will determine our exact site. Anticipated return time is 1:00pm.

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.
