  • Clean Up & Friendgiving Potluck @ Virginia Key Outdoor Center

    We will be taking a short hike to North Point Beach, where much of the debris that gets washed up on the shore is from the neighboring port, Fisher Island, and passing boat traffic. We have found things such as propellers, coolers, buoys, and even animal bones.

    Bags and Gloves will be supplied to Volunteers. Once we are done with the Clean Up we will return to VKOC to weigh and record all debris found!

    After the Clean Up, we will set up on the Picnic Benches and share some yummy Thanksgiving Left Overs. Volunteers are encouraged to bring dishes to share. We ask that Volunteers bring their own cutlery in order to reduce waste. Paper plates and cups will be available. This event is 100% outdoors and family friendly.


    We love our hard-working volunteers! VKOC will be starting the Volunteer Appreciation Program to reward those that put sweat, tears, and time to ensure that Virginia Key is a CLEAN place where nature lovers and others from all walks of life can come and enjoy it!

    Check ins will begin at 8:00AM, Please come inside the retail room to check-in.
    What Should I Bring?
    - Dress for the weather and wear appropriate foot-wear. We recommend closed-toed shoes for beach cleanup and water shoes
    - Sunglasses and hat are highly recommended
    - Bring gloves if you have them (we suggest reusable working, gardening or dish gloves that you can pick up at the grocery store/home depot) We will have some onsite but cannot guarantee they will be in your size!

    🧜🏻‍♀️ Bring your Friends, we’re gonna need all the help we can get!

    Bill Baggs State Park Weekly Beach Cleanup

    Come on out and join us for our weekly cleanup! Please bring along sunscreen, insect repellent, and a water bottle.  We will provide buckets, trash bags, plastic gloves and trash grabbers.

    We meet at Pavilion C-16 beach access 7 near the lighthouse. The Cleanup lasts from 9am to 11am. Expect a long line to enter the park. When you arrive to the park tell the ranger on duty that you are attending the beach cleanup and they will give you directions and waive the entrance fee.

    Individuals under 16 years of age require adult supervision.  Please, no drop-offs.   

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

    Thank you and we hope to see you there.  We believe that teaching stewardship for our environment and community is the best hope for the future of our parks.
