We are excited to announce that registration is OPEN for the annual county-wide International Coastal Cleanup Miami-Dade to be held on Saturday, September 16th, 2023 with Miami Waterkeeper!
Get ready to join millions of volunteers around the globe for the Ocean Conservancy’s 38th annual International Coastal Cleanup – the world’s LARGEST one-day volunteer effort for our oceans and waterways.
Spearheaded globally by the Ocean Conservancy, VolunteerCleanup.org organizes Miami-Dade’s local participation in this annual event with 50+ simultaneous shoreline cleanups around the county and is made possible by the generous support of our presenting sponsors Covanta and Boucher Brothers, with additional support from Blackstone Charitable Foundation, The Brady Hunter Foundation, Benjamin & Gloria Joannou, Jr. Family Conservation Fund, City of Miami Beach, The Miami Foundation, Loud And Live, and Miami-Dade County RER-DERM.
All volunteers will get a reusable tote bag with this year's animal theme, the Seahorse! We will have contests for those who find the strangest thing, and as always, community service hours will be provided.
Volunteercleanup.org and Miami Waterkeeper will provide all the supplies required for the event but please remember to wear closed toed-shoes, bring a reusable water bottle and appropriate sun protection! This event is suitable for all ages, however, anyone under the age of 14 will need to be accompanied by an adult. Community Service hours are also provided.
