Marine Debris Citizen Science EcoAction Day
REGISTRATION REQUIRED. PLEASE VISIT THE FOLLOWING LINK TO SIGN UP FOR THIS EVENT:
Join Miami EcoAdventures & local non-profit Debris Free Oceans for our Citizen Science Project Activity, hosted at Crandon Park. Citizen Science is a way for the general public to be directly involved in the process of scientific data collection and to be engaged in scientific thinking. The goal of this activity is to have volunteers become amateur scientists while working with a group of professional scientists to collect critical data on marine debris in our local environment.
Volunteers will also get an opportunity to learn about their impact from the Miami-Dade County Sea Turtle Conservation Program.
Responsibilities and Duties:
- Cleaning up the beach
- Sorting, gathering and recording data
Qualifications: Volunteers under 13 must participate with a parent/guardian present. Please bring a refillable water bottle, closed-toed shoes, and protection from the sun (sunscreen, hats, sunglasses).
Commitment Expected: Please arrive at your scheduled start time and practice social distancing. Community service hours will be provided at the end of the event.
