Gold Coast Beverage Beach Cleanup and Crawl

Join us for a special team building on World Ocean's Day! We'll be participating as a group for the monthly Ft. Lauderdale Beach Sweep. 

All cleanup supplies will be provided to volunteers for the cleanup (gloves, buckets, garbage bags, pickers, sunscreen, water, hand sanitizer etc) and a water cooler for filtered cold water refills) 

We will have our own registration check-in table on the sand/beach at Las Olas, look for VolunteerCleanup.org signage. 

Volunteers Should:

  • Dress for the weather and wear shoes comfortable for walking on the sand.   Hat and sunglasses are also recommended for a hot and sunny day. We provide sturdy ponchos in the case of light rain.
  • Please bring water in a reusable bottle so we can reduce plastic waste where possible. We will provide water coolers for cold water refills but will not be providing bottled water.
  • Download the Clean Swell App to participate in the Citizen Science Data Logging. You will work in teams of 2-3ppl
