Beach Cleanup with Mayor Dan Gelber
Please join Mayor Gelber on March 24th at South Pointe Park on Miami Beach! The cleanup will begin at 8:30AM
VolunteerCleanup.org will provide all cleanup supplies: gloves, garbage bags, buckets, and some pickers, and a water cooler for cold water refills. Reef-safe oxybenzone-free sunscreen provided by MB Suncare.
Meeting Spot: at the red pin drop on this map https://goo.gl/maps/k16Qovw4JfC2
We will be set up at South Point Park, in the shade/grass area, close to the walking path, on the east side of the park, closest to the beach/pier, in front of the “wet playground” water thingy. Look for our table and banner!
- Dress comfortably according to the weather.
- Sunglasses and a hat is also suggested for a sunny day.
- Wear closed-toe shoes/sneakers, especially if you plan on cleaning the rocks of the jetty area. No flip-flops or sandals permitted on the rocky areas. If you plan to stick to the sandy beach, wear comfortable shoes for walking on the beach.
- Bring water in your own reusable bottle. Filtered water will be provided in a cooler to reduce plastic waste.
- Gloves and trash bags will be provided; however, feel free to bring your own gardening or work gloves if you have them.
- To expedite check-in, please bring your waiver printed and pre-signed. Minors under the age of 18 will need to bring their waiver pre-signed by a parent/guardian
- Walk, bike, trolley or uber!
- There is a parking lot by Smith/Wollensky and South Pointe Park, but keep in mind that on weekends while its only $6 for Miami Beach residents, its $20 for all others. If you park here, it’s a lovely 5-10 minute walk down the boardwalk through South Pointe Park alongside Government Cut to the beach.
- Alternatively you can look for metered parking around Washington, Ocean Drive and South Pointe Drive area, and head to the beach from South Pointe Drive /Nikki Beach entrance to the beach, in which case it’s an equally lovely 5-10 minute walk either along the beach or the walking path behind the dune line that runs parallel to the beach.
OTHER: Help us collect ocean trash data! Volunteers are welcome to be citizen scientists for the morning by downloading the Clean Swell app and easily collect data on the debris they find. Download the app in advance and we’ll walk you through the steps at the cleanup! www.oceanconservancy.org/cleanswell
