Biscayne National Park Weekday Beach Cleanups


NOTE: We are not currently accepting individual registrations, but rather PRE-ORGANIZED groups of 5-8 volunteers.

Join us for a full day exploring and beautifying Biscayne National Park.  Participants should meet in the Breezeway of the Dante Fascell Visitor Center at 8am and will be escorted by park staff to a meeting room for a quick introduction and safety briefing.  We will then travel by park boats across Biscayne Bay to a beach on the oceanside of an island to conduct a clean-up on a sea turtle nesting beach. We will return to park headquarters at ~2pm and unload the trash from the boats.  Participants can expect to be done by 3pm.

WHAT TO WEAR: Volunteers should wear a bathing suit and clothes that can get wet and dirty.  Lightweight and long sleeves/pants are best to provide protection from the sun and bugs.  Dive booties, old sneakers, or any other durable closed-toe footwear are required (no open-toe shoes are allowed).  We can loan you dive booties for your use if you do not have proper footwear.  Hat and sunglasses are recommended.  

WHAT TO BRING: Plenty of food and drinks to last you the day.   Although not necessary, a towel may be useful.

WHAT WE WILL PROVIDE: Coolers for food and drink storage, a large water jug for re-filling your beverage container, sunscreen, bug spray, hand sanitizer, life jackets, dive booties (for those that need them), and all work-related gear (such as protective gloves, trash bags etc.).


*Participants must be 14 years of age or older.
