  • Morningside Park Cleanup & Yoga! | SeaKeepers & Awareness Into Action

    Interested in volunteering in your community while helping the environment? Get involved with The International SeaKeepers Society! 🌎 Support SeaKeepers by volunteering at our combined beach + waterway clean up and YOGA class to recognize the ocean’s critical importance to the life of our planet!



    EVERY participant must complete a liability waiver!! Complete HERE. You will not be allowed to participate without this form signed. You too, adults!


    This is both a BEACH/PARK cleanup and a KAYAK cleanup! You are welcome to join us on foot or by paddle! We do NOT provide free kayaks. Morningside Watersports offers a $10 discount/hour for those wishing to rent kayaks!



    - For contact-less check-in, bring your smart phone to the event. 

    - Download the CLEAN SWELL App beforehand, and look for an email from me explaining how to use it

    - Be safe! Please adhere to social distancing guidelines and maintain at least 6ft from other volunteers. 


    Information for KAYAKERS:

    🦈 BYO kayak! SeaKeepers will NOT be providing kayaks. Kayak rentals are available from Morningside Park for $10-$15/hour. 

    🦈 The plan is to kayak across an active boating channel to picnic island where trash accumulates pretty badly. A SeaKeeper will show you where to go!


    Information for YOGA PARTICIPANTS:

    🦈 This is FREE from 10am - 11am! You can join the yoga or jump right into cleaning! Our yoga instructor, Eugene Gant, offers a class that is fun and inclusive, so get the whole family involved!


    Where to meet: Park in lot 7 (the first lot on your left as you enter, or the last lot on your right as you exit) near the kayak launch.

    🦈 Mask & Gloves (you must wear a mask at the check-in table, and please bring your own gloves if you need them for the cleanup)
