North Bayshore Park | International Coastal Cleanup 2022

It’s time for the 37th annual International Coastal Cleanup! Join us for the world's largest, one-day volunteer effort for our oceans and waterways, and show your commitment to reducing marine debris, along with millions of volunteers from across the globe!

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 are planning a fun and rewarding morning cleaning up the shoreline of our beautiful Biscayne Bay.

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:

  • Meet up spot is the tikki hut
  • There is a small parking lot onsite or street parking on the side streets 
  • Volunteers of all ages are welcome but small children will need adult supervision as this cleanup is near water and around slippery/rocky shoreline areas. 

Info for Volunteers:

  • Dress for the weather and wear appropriate foot-wear. This is a rocky 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.
  • Complete the online waiver here 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 in advance.
  • 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!
