Biscayne National Park International Coastal Cleanup
Important: Each individual participant must be age 18 and up. Please RSVP with phone number. This will be used for contact in case of weather-related changes.
We will boat across Biscayne Bay to Elliott Key. We will anchor in waist-deep water and wade through water to reach the shoreline. Close-toed shoes and comfort in the water are required. We'll remove debris for 2-3 hours while capturing data, then weigh the debris, load the boats and return to the Visitor Center. This event will happen rain or shine, though local weather conditions will determine our exact site. Anticipated return time is 1:00pm.
*Masks optional for vaccinated participants.
Complete the online waiver here in advance to expedite check-in.
We will provide garbage bags, gloves, data collection cards, and a souvenir tote bag with this year’s marine animal theme, the Octopus! *Community Service hours will be provided*. This year's shirts are available for purchase here!
