Legion Park Coastal Clean Up ICC 2023

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!

Legion Park is one of the most beautiful city parks in the state. From the sprawling Oak trees and hanging Moss to the blooming Royal Poinciana Trees. Our Saturday Open Air Market is also one of the best in the city, with amazing vendors and a great free Yoga class under the shade trees.

The most beautiful part of this amazing place is the coastline to the bay on the eastern border of the park. Upper East Side residents take pride in our park, but garbage infiltrating coastlines around the globe is a major issue. Sign up to help us keep our neighborhood park clean. We hauled in 500 lbs. of garbage from Legion Park’s coastline last year in just 1.5 hrs. Unreal. This is a great event for adults and kids that want to learn about this serious issue and see firsthand how to really make a difference.

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 _mangrove site with a rocky shoreline , and you should wear closed-toed shoes like sneakers, no flipflops or sandals!
  • 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!
