Miami Waterkeeper is proud to continue our partnership with Miami EcoAdventures and offer a new volunteer opportunity! Volunteers will join us for a walking (about 0.7 miles) marine debris clean-up through the mangroves of Bear Cut Preserve followed by a snorkeling adventure at Fossil Reef.
***LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE***
Fee: $30 per person for a 3 hour mangrove clean-up and snorkel event. Registration fee includes snorkeling gear (mask and snorkel), clean-up materials, and Miami Waterkeeper and Miami EcoAdventures staff guides. 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 mangrove habitats followed by snorkeling
This volunteer event may require heavy lifting and experience snorkeling, 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*
