Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserve at Pelican Harbor Marina - Intl Coastal Cleanup Day
Worldwide, thousands of volunteers from over 100 countries will spend their morning collecting millions of pounds of litter and debris on inland roadsides, coastal areas, inland lakes and rivers. Volunteers will assist in this effort to clean and protect the environment by eliminating debris that injures wildlife, contaminates our beaches and waterways, and threatens boater safety in Miami-Dade County. Local volunteers are needed to join this effort. To register, please email Tanya Denis : [email protected]
This regional effort is part of the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), which takes place every year on the third Saturday of September. The event is sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy and is supported locally by business and environmentally conscious organizations.
