LIMITED CAPACITY EVENT, REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Please visit the following link to register:
Description: Join Miami EcoAdventures, Debris Free Oceans, and the Miami-Dade Sea Turtle Conservation Program for our monthly Citizen Science EcoAction Day, 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. The citizen science activity includes a beach cleanup followed by the sorting of debris into pre-determined categories in order to better quantify the issue of marine debris at Crandon Park. Volunteers under 13 must participate with a parent/guardian present. Please bring a refillable water bottle, closed-toed shoes, and protection from the sun. Please arrive at your scheduled start time and practice social distancing. Community service hours will be provided at the end of the event.
