Black Point Marina International Coastal Cleanup Day
Please join us and be part of the largest volunteer effort to cleanup waterways and the ocean! Now is the time to give back and help protect our precious environment. We will be meeting at the big pavilion opposite side of channel from the boat ramps. If entering from 87th Ave, go straight thru gate to parking ahead. If entering from Coconut Palm Dr, go past marina and over bridge then turn right towards the public restrooms, pavilion is just past that.
Volunteers must check in and sign waivers before any materials will be distributed. If under 18 without a parent or guardian, you must have a parent or guardian sign waiver below in advanced and bring to site.
13 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

International Coastal Cleanup will provide garbage bags, data collection cards, and a giveaway goodie bag.
In 2015, more than 18 millions pounds of trash was collected by nearly 800,000 volunteers during the International Coastal Cleanup. In Miami Dade County 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 cataloguing and tallying what you find using the Ocean Conservancy's data collection cards or Clean Swell Apps (in iTunes store or Google Play). The resulting item by item, location by location ocean trash index that Ocean Conservancy compiles each year provides the only global snapshot of the marine debris littering coast and waterways around the world.
We need YOUR help to keep this momentum going!
