Miami Waterkeeper is proud to continue our partnership with Miami EcoAdventures to offer public volunteer kayak clean-up events! Volunteers will hit the water on kayaks to conduct a marine debris clean-up in our coastal and mangrove habitats. University of Miami's Rescue a Reef team will join us at this clean-up to educate participants on the importance of coral reef restoration!
Fee: $30 per person for a 2 hour kayak clean-up. Registration fee includes kayak, paddles, PFDs, hydration packets, light snacks, and a Miami Waterkeeper staff guide. Registration fees are due in order to RSVP and refunds will not be issued for no-shows.
Volunteer Day Main Tasks:
- Removal of marine debris from the water and surrounding mangrove habitats
This volunteer event may require heavy lifting and experience on a kayak, 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*
