Miami Waterkeeper is proud to co-host a 2023 Earth Day "Wade-In" Clean-up with BLUE Missions and Repair the World at Historic Virginia Key Beach Park!
Volunteer Day Main Tasks:
- Wading into the water to remove marine debris
We will be conducting a wade-in marine debris clean-up where volunteers will wade-in to the water (to their comfort level) to collect marine debris from the water. This volunteer event may require heavy lifting hence teenagers and older groups are recommended. If younger age groups participate, they should be monitored at all times by the designated guardian, parents, etc. *Community Service hours also provided*

Please be on time, registration begins 30 minutes before the volunteer workday starts. Please arrive at 9:30am!
Refillable water bottle. Stay hydrated and be prepared to work outside and in the water.
Closed-toe shoes/water shoes are required and long-sleeved shirts are recommended (shorts and clothes that can get wet).
