    Hobie Island | International Coastal Cleanup 2022

    My dear friends, meine lieben Freunde, queridos amigos:

    Let’s put the sun and fun back into responsibility! Would you like to help clean up Miami-Dade's beaches in a big way, just like we did the previous years? I will be a site coordinator again and would love for as many of you as possible to show up! Invite friends and family, too. You can simply share this link with everyone you know!! It’s a great, great opportunity to do something for our city, our beaches, and especially raise environmental awareness: EVERY helping hand counts and every effort is worth a lot. Children any age are welcome to join, too! (Linus and Lia are ready to roll! :)) Registration is required to participate.

    "Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing." — Thomas Jefferson

    Spearheaded globally by the Ocean Conservancy, VolunteerCleanup.org organizes Miami-Dade’s local participation in this annual 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.

    We will provide garbage bags, gloves, data collection cards, and a souvenir tote bag with this year’s marine animal theme, the Hermit Crab.  *Community Service hours also provided*    

    This year's shirts are available for purchase here! 

    Details for this site:

    Info for Volunteers:

    • Dress for the weather and wear appropriate foot-wear. This is a mixed terrain site, and you should wear closed-toed shoes like sneakers, no flipflops or sandals!)
    • Sunglasses, hat, and sunscreen are recommended
    • If you have gloves, bring them. We will be providing gloves but cannot guarantee they will be in your size. We suggest reusable working, gardening, or dish gloves that you can pick up at the grocery/hardware store.
    • Bring water in a reusable container. Let’s reduce waste and refuse single-use disposable plastic water bottles.
    • A paper waiver for Miami-Dade county Parks will be required on the day of the event. ** However, if you are under 18 and coming without a parent or guardian, you must have a parent/guardian print and sign the waiver HERE in advance, and bring it with you to the cleanup. 
    • 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 the paper data cards!
