Legion Park Cleanup

Please join us for a (hopefully, weather-permitting) beautiful morning in front of the bay! We will be focusing specifically on the rocky shore along the eastern side of the park. This bayside park provides beautiful panoramic views of all of Miami Beach. However, unfortunately this area is also subjected to litter from shore as well as tidal accumulation from the bay. By cleaning this area, we prevent trash from being washed out to sea, where it will pose a threat to wildlife and remain indefinitely as litter, breaking down in smaller and harder to collect pieces. Let's keep Biscayne Bay beautiful and protect the dolphins, manatees, birds, fish and other marine life that call these waters home. 

We will meet near the playground at the back end of the park at 8:00 am for a quick chat and instructions, then spend about an hour and half cleaning up and lastly consolidate everything we've found to measure our total impact. After the cleanup, we encourage you to join free yoga in park from 10 - 11 am and then check out the many wonderful local vendors at the Upper Eastside farmer's market!

The terrain will be rocky, so you may want to wear sneakers. For more information about participating in a cleanup, please visit the organization's FAQ page.
