Our beach cleanup event will be a chance to give back to our beaches that we enjoyed all summer. After cleaning, we’ll enjoy the last few days of summer vacation with a relaxing afternoon at Matheson Hammocks park & marina. We welcome children with accompanying adult. Before many of us get back into the hustle and bustle of going back-to-school, there is no better to celebrate than with a day of service!!

*We provide all the tools at our cleanups, however we STRONGLY recommend that volunteers bring a reusable water bottle! If you would like to bring any tools of your own such as garbage bags or gloves, you are more than welcome to!*

Let's make a world a better place!

 

 


MUVE Miami - Citizen Science Workday

Saturday, August 13, 2016 at 10:00 AM
Citizen science beach cleanup, tree monitoring, and nature walk on the beach next to the Virginia Key Bike Trail. 
To register, please visit: http://www.miamisci.org/muve/get-involved
Event Description:
This event will begin at 10am and will end at noon. Please bring a water bottle (we will have cold water for refills) and wear cool, comfortable clothes. We will have no plastic cups available! The site gets direct sun, so keep sun protection in mind (lightweight long sleeves and pants are perfect). We will complete a trio of citizen science activities at the restoration site: 
  • Citizen science beach cleanup: volunteers collect trash from the beach and log each item using Marine Debris Tracker, a free smartphone and tablet app. Back at home, you can view the data from their collection in an Excel file and as a graphical map. 
  • Tree phenology and monitoring: volunteers observe newly planted trees at our restoration site, specifically measuring the diameter of the tree trunk (to assess growth) and whether the tree is losing leaves, has budding leaves, fruits, or flowers. We submit these data to Project BudBurst, a national database of tree phenology. 
  • Naturalist walk: volunteers walk the restoration site, looking for birds, butterflies, and other wildlife using the area as habitat, then log these observations with iNaturalist, a smartphone app.

Directions and Meeting Spot:

If you’re coming from the mainland, go toward Key Biscayne, over the Rickenbacker to Virginia Key. Turn left after the light at MAST Academy onto Arthur Lamb Rd. You will pass a toll booth; let the attendant know you’re there to volunteer at the North Point. Follow the road to the right at the fork and park in the dirt lot at the end of the road, where the Virginia Key Mountain Bike trails begin. This is not the beach parking lot! There is no address for this site, but you can enter “Virginia Key Mountain Bike Trail” into Google Maps for directions. We will meet at the parking lot and walk to the dune together, after a short briefing.
