North Bay Shore, William Lehman Park/ International Coastal Cleanup Day

North Miami it is that time of year again! We need to keep our city clean. Join us for the International Coastal Cleanup to make this effort successful. Ocean trash is a consequential issue in our society that affects our health and environment.

Last year, more than 18 million pounds of trash was collected by approximately 800,000 volunteers during the International Coastal Cleanup. Here in Miami-Dade, we collected 17,500 pounds of marine debris from 31 miles of coastline. Join our site to help us come together and tackle the trash around the world.

Registration begins at 8 AM under the tent near the pier.

There is a parking lot located on site. Parking is very limited so we encourage you to carpool.

Everyone that participates should register online individually.  Families coming together can RSVP as a group.  We must have your name on the RSVP list as an individual (or your parent) in order for you to receive the giveaway backpack. 

Please fill out the waivers that will be sent to you via email after you register and email them back so that the registration process can be smoother.

Participants 15 years old and younger must be accompanied by an adult.

ALL participants under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian sign the waiver in advance.

Volunteers should:

  • Wear appropriate closed-toes shoes or water shoes and comfortable clothes.

  • Sunscreen and insect repellant , sunglasses, hat are highly recommended

  • Please bring a reusable water bottle to refill your bottle with water. Let’s reduce our plastic waste and refuse single-use disposable plastic water bottles, when possible.

We will provide garbage bags, data collection cards, a giveaway goodie bag, community service hours certificate, snacks, and water.
