Miami-Dade Parks EcoAction Day & NFLGreen Community Greening Kick-Off

Every 2nd Saturday of the month join Miami EcoAdventures naturalists in restoring the park and its natural areas by participating in the monthly community EcoAction beach and park clean-up day.

This month, we will be celebrating the National Football League’s  “passing of the golden shovel” from Atlanta to Miami to kick-off Super Bowl LIV community greening projects (partnership of NFL Green, the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee and Verizon). 

Join the celebration by cheering the planting of a ceremonial tree (a gift from Atlanta) in the middle of Crandon Park Garden, the historic greenspace of the old Crandon Zoo followed by teaming up into volunteer EcoAction teams to: 

  • Plant 1000 sea oats to restore the Crandon Beach coastal habitat dunes.
  • Plant a pollinator garden that connects from the family amusement center to the beach.
  • Clean-up 2-Miles of Beach reducing plastic and debris pollution from land to sea.
  • Restore, clean and remove invasive plants from existing historical Crandon Park Zoo and Garden.
  • Plant trees on park greenspaces and help in general park beautification clean-up.

Are you a Super Bowl LIV VOLUNTEER?  Stay tuned for more opportunities with Ocean Conservancy.

Please bring comfortable closed-toed shoes, insect repellent, work gloves (if you have them), protection from the sun and a re-fillable water bottle.  Long shirts/pants, water, hats, and sunglasses are highly recommended.
