Black Point Marina Clean Up

Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 07:00 AM · 30 rsvps
Black Point Marina in Miami, FL

I will be taking a few garbage bags, but the dock master's office said they can give some to us as well. They have also said they will take care of throwing out the bags we collect. We just need to leave them all in one spot and they will take care of them. :) I suggest bug repellent and sun block. 

**My child woke up with a fever today and I will be unable to attend. I hope everyine gets tjis messagw

Keep the Sea Free from Debris- Scavenger Hunt

Sunday, July 02, 2017 at 09:00 AM
Hobie Island Beach Park in Key Biscayne, FL

We'll supply bags, gloves, and a list of things to find, and we'll give you 45 minutes to see how many you can get. Prizes will be awarded for Most Garbage Collected, Weirdest Garbage, and Best Team Name (individuals also welcome).

What to Bring
Just like any cleanup event, it's a good idea to wear closed-toed shoes, bring your own reusable water bottle, and wear sunscreen and other sun protection like hats or sunglasses. 

Do we need to bring our own supplies?

No, but it is highly encouraged. While we want to have the cleanest and greenest cleanup possible, we'll provide recycling and trash bags, gloves, and data cards for volunteers. However, don't be surprised if you only get one bag or one glove! After all, our primary goal is to reduce...and then reuse and recycle.


Ages Requirements and Youth Volunteers

We welcome all ages. Our sites are appropriate for children, but if you see a location that requires lots of walking, make sure your kids can handle it. We also require a responsible adult to sign for any child under 18.


Community Service Credits

Beach captains have been authorized to sign your community service paperwork. Bring the appropriate forms and come help us out!

Manasota Key Beach Cleanup after Fourth of July

Wednesday, July 05, 2017 at 05:00 PM · 2 rsvps
Manasota Key Beach in Englewood, FL

Hello! Looking for a volunteer opportunity that also lets you hang out at the beach? Then lets give back to the community together by cleaning up Manasota Key Beach on July 5th. Beaches are a popular to hang spot especially for holidays, so there may be extra trash to clean up after the Fourth of July. This can be very harmful for the environment, and very distasteful for beach-lovers.

All you have to do is show up at the Manasota Beach's main parking lot at 5 pm. Please try to arrive before or at this time, so we can begin cleanup as soon as we can.
RSVP is not required, but I would recommend it! This way I know how many people to account for :)
IF POSSIBLE, please bring your own large garbage bag. If you don't bring a bag, its fine - I will bring plenty extra for you.
I would like to request you wear a light blue shirt you have so we can find all volunteers, but this is also not a necessity.
Sodas and water will be provided, but supply will be limited. If you would like, you may bring drinks as well.

If you are interested, I would love to work with you. Please feel free to email me or text me (calling not prefered) at any time with questions or to confirm your interest in volunteering. Hope to talk to you soon!


Keg & Klean - South Beach

Friday, July 07, 2017 at 05:30 PM · 13 rsvps

The trifecta of Miami cleanup organizations is teaming up with the two Miami Beach surf shops to unite under the causes of clean oceans and free beer! As a part of South Beach Diver and Surf’s 2017 Shark Week, Debris Free Oceans, Surfrider Miami and VolunteerCleanup.org will be hosting a collaborative Keg & Klean beach cleanup with F1RST Street Surf Shop. Bote Boards will be providing demo paddleboards so that we can take this cleanup into the ocean as well!

The cleanup will take place at the pier and beach at 1st street in South Beach from 5:30-8:30 p.m.on July 7th, so we can pick up after our Fourth of July partiers.

If you are new to a Keg & Klean, the concept is simple: come join us for a sunset beach cleanup, bring a reusable cup and get free beer! Wynwood Brewing Co. will be providing us with kegs for the evening, which will be kept at F1RST Street. Debris Free Oceans and Volunteer Cleanup will provide all cleaning supplies.

Meet us at F1RST Street to fill up your cup, and then head to the beach and find the Surfrider table to grab supplies. Then take to the beach with your bucket and your brew and enjoy the sunset while picking up our beautiful coastline.

We look forward to enjoying beers, the sunset, and a cleaner beach with you on July 7th

Come on out and join us for our Monthly Beach Cleanup from 9 am - 11 am.  Please wear closed toe shoes and a hat and bring along sunscreen, insect repellant,  and a water bottle.  We will provide trash bags, plastic gloves  and trash grabbers and iced tap water to refill your water bottles.

Please be here promptly at 9 am so we can start everyone out at the same time and complete the activity before it gets too hot in the late morning.

This is a great way to earn volunteer hours for school, so please tell your classmates about this opportunity.  All Volunteers will receive a letter certifying their volunteer hours.

Cleanups are always held on the second Saturday of each month so we have upcoming events scheduled for February 11, March 11, April 8, May 13, and June 10.  So if you cant make this event check beck next month.
