Bill Baggs State Park International Coastal Cleanup 2022

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 County’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! 

Registration is required to participate. Where possible, please have guests in your party RSVP individually so we can ensure they get all information and details about the event and can accurately plan for turnout.

We meet at Pavilion C-16 beach access 7 near the lighthouse. The Cleanup lasts from 9am to 11am. Expect a long line to enter the park. When you arrive to the park tell the ranger on duty that you are attending the beach cleanup and they will give you directions and waive the entrance fee.

Individuals under 16 years of age require adult supervision.  Please, no drop-offs.   

Info for Volunteers:

  • Dress for the weather and wear appropriate foot-wear. This is a beach site, and you should wear appropriate footwear that you are comfortable walking on sand in. 
  • 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 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!
