In November 2018, Hydro Flask, the award-winning leader in high performance, insulated stainless steel flasks, announced that Miami Waterkeeper was one of the recipients of its 2018 Parks for All Charitable Giving Program.

Hydro Flask helped us achieve the following accomplishments in 2019:
- 27 cleanups
- 993 volunteers participated in service events
- 800+ pounds of marine debris was collected
- 22 1,000 Eyes on the Water trainings were held

Parks for All supports the development, maintenance, and accessibility of public green spaces in the United States and beyond so people everywhere can live healthier, happier and more fulfilled lives. Hydro Flask Parks for All funding helped support programs including our routine Water Quality Monitoring and 1,000 Eyes on the Water. We are proud to partner with Hydro Flask and continue to make strides towards ensuring swimmable, drinkable, and fishable water for all.
There is still plenty of work to be done and always room to learn more about how you can help protect the waters you love! To sign up for one of our 1,000 Eyes on the Water trainings or a volunteer event click HERE.
