Kennedy Park | International Coastal Cleanup Day

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

Volunteers should:

  • Wear appropriate closed-toes shoes or water shoes and comfortable clothes.
  • Sunscreen, 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 Water in a reusable container. Let’s reduce our plastic waste and refuse single-use disposable plastic water bottles, when possible.
  • Snacks

*International Coastal Cleanup will provide garbage bags, data collection cards, community service hours certificate, and a giveaway goodie bag 

 In 2015, more than 18 million pounds of trash was collected by nearly 800,000 volunteers during the International Coastal Cleanup. Here in Miami Dade, we collected 17,500 pounds of marine debris from 31 miles of coastline.

By volunteering at ICC, you will be actively participating in a global citizen science project, not only by removing marine debris, but by also cataloguing and tallying what you find using the Ocean Conservancy’s data collection cards or Clean Swell App. The resulting item-by-item, location-by-location Ocean Trash Index that Ocean
