As part of our commitment to keeping our beaches beautiful, Miami Beach Suncare invites you to join the world’s largest volunteer effort for our ocean and waterways by participating in International Coastal Cleanup Day. We can’t wait to see you there!
If please have guests in your party RSVP individually so we can ensure they get all information and details about the event and so we can properly plan for capacity.
We will meet at the entrance to the beach at 54rd street
We will provide you with:
Data Collection Cards
Miami Beach Sunscreen
Community Service Hour Certificate
Giveaway Goodie Bag – Thanks for participating! 🙂
Water cooler for cold water refills
Volunteers should bring/wear:
Appropriate clothing/shoes to walk the beach
A hat and/or sunglasses is strongly recommended
Feel free to bring snacks/water in a reusable bottle. Let’s reduce plastic waste where possible!
**If you are under 18 and coming without a parent or guardian, you must have a parent/guardian sign the waiver below in advance. Download Waiver here
Before the event, download the Ocean Conservancy’s CleanSwell app to log, tally and measure the impact of your cleanup. With Clean Swell, the data you collect will upload to Ocean Conservancy’s global ocean trash database in real time. It’s easier and more fun than using the paper data cards! You can download the app here:
In 2016 more than 18 million pounds of trash was collected by over 500,000 volunteers during the International Coastal Cleanup. Here in Miami Dade, we collected 15,000 pounds of marine debris from 31 miles of coastline.
By volunteering at ICC you will be actively participating in a global citizen science project, not only by removing marine debris but by cataloging and tallying what you find using the Ocean Conservancy’s data collection cards or the Clean Swell App. The resulting item by item, location by location ocean trash index that Ocean Conservancy compiles each year provides the only global snapshot of the marine debris littering coast and waterways around the world.
