Vizcaya Museum & Gardens | International Coastal Cleanup
This site has re-scheduled the cleanup for Saturday, Sept. 23rd!
Vizcaya, the winter estate of agricultural industrialist James Deering, sits on Biscayne Bay and hosts pockets of endangered native ecosystems. Join us to venture into Vizcaya's mangroves to clean them up after Irma and restore them to a healthy ecosystem, you will also learn about our environmental initiatives and how you can be part of them.
Clean up will be led by Vizcaya's Learning and Horticulture staff. Plan ahead for:
- Wear appropriate foot-wear and comfortable clothes. Volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes like sneakers, no flipflops!
- Sunglasses and hat are highly recommended
- Bring gloves if you have them (we suggest reusable working, gardening or dish gloves that you can pick up at the grocery store/home depot)
- Bring snacks and water in a reusable container. Let’s reduce waste and refuse single-use disposable plastic water bottles, when possible.
- **If you are under 18 and coming without a parent or guardian, you must have a parent/guardian sign the waiver below in advance. Download Waiver
- Volunteers must check-in and sign waivers before any materials (bags, cards, or gift bags can be distributed)
Each person must RSVP individually and max. capacity is 35 participants.
Before the event, download the Ocean Conservancy’s CleanSwell app to log, tally and measure the impact of your cleanup. With Clean Swell, the data you collect will upload to Ocean Conservancy’s global ocean trash database in real time. It’s easier and more fun than using the paper data cards!
