Vizcaya | International Coastal Cleanup 2022

Vizcaya is honored to be one of the cleanup sites for the Annual International Coastal Cleanup taking place on Saturday, September 17, 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

This is the world’s largest, one-day volunteer effort for our oceans and waterways. Come out and show your commitment to reducing marine debris. Spearheaded globally by the Ocean Conservancy, organizes Miami-Dade’s local participation in the annual International Coastal event with 45+ simultaneous shoreline cleanups around the county and is made possible by the generous support of our presenting sponsors Covanta and Rickenbacker Marina, with additional support from Blackstone Charitable Foundation, Verizon, Miami-Dade County RER-DERMPubbelly Sushi, and Greenberg Traurig.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.  There are a total of 100 spots available.

  • This event is suitable for everyone, however anyone 16 years of age or younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Info for Volunteers:

  • Dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear. This is an old-growth native mangrove swamp site, and you must wear closed-toed shoes like sneakers, (no flip-flops or sandals!), long pants and long-sleeved shirts and a hat are advised.
  • Complete the online waiver in advance to expedite check-in. **If you are under 18 and coming without a parent or guardian, you must have a parent/guardian print and sign the waiver HERE and bring it with you.

  • Bring water in a reusable container. Let’s reduce waste and refuse single-use disposable plastic water bottles.
  • Download the Ocean Conservancy’s CleanSwell app to participate in the Citizen Science activity to log, tally and measure the impact of your cleanup.  It is easier and more fun than using paper data cards!
