Vizcaya, the winter estate of agricultural industrialist James Deering, sits on Biscayne Bay and hosts pockets of endangered native ecosystems. Join us on Saturday, Sept. 30th from 9 a.m. to noon to clean up Vizcaya after Irma and restore its gardens to healthy ecosystems. You will also learn about our environmental initiatives and how you can be part of them! Clean up will be led by Vizcaya's Learning and Horticulture staff and Miami Waterkeeper will be there too!
Each person participating must RSVP individually below. Sign up now because space is limited to max. capacity of 30 participants!
- Wear appropriate foot-wear and comfortable clothes. Volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes like sneakers, no flipflops!
- Sunglasses and hat are highly recommended
- Bring gloves if you have them (we suggest reusable working, gardening or dish gloves that you can pick up at the grocery store/home depot)
- Bring snacks and water in a reusable container. Let’s reduce waste and refuse single-use disposable plastic water bottles, when possible.
