FBA - Bayfront Park | International Coastal Cleanup

FBA is partnering with Bayfront Park Miami and VolutneerCleanup.org to clean up the beautiful Biscayne Bay shoreline connecting Bayside and the Miami River as part of International Coastal Cleanup Day. 

Come volunteer and enjoy a beautiful day downtown while making a positive impact in your city.

Your day of service will include water, snacks, and community service hours.

Please confirm your participation by RSVP'ing on this page, on the right.
Let us know whether or not you need transportation no later than Monday, September 18th by emailing us at info@foreverbloom.org. Volunteer spaces are limited to adult and teen volunteers 15 years and older.

Please visit foreverbloom.org/bayfront-park-clean-up/ for more information and requirements for volunteering in this project.

Ocean trash is a serious pollution problem that affects the health of people, wildlife, and local economies. Join the world’s largest volunteer effort for our ocean and waterways by participating in International Coastal Cleanup.  We will provide garbage bags, data collection cards, MB Suncare sunscreen, insect repellent, and a giveaway goodie bag!   

Community Service hours provided! 

Where possible, please have guests in your party RSVP individually so we can ensure they get all information and details about the event.  

 Volunteers should:

  • Wear closed-toed shoes like sneakers that can get dirty. No flip-flops!
  • Sunglasses and hat are highly recommended
  • Bring gloves (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)

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! You can download the app here:
