Margaret Pace Park | International Coastal Cleanup
*****LOCATION CHANGE-- MOVED TO MARGARET PACE PARK
We have to relocate to Margaret Pace Park, due to construction and accessibility to Albert Pallot, we were just notified by City of Miami Parks and Recreation
Meeting point is at the picnic tables by the dog park inside the park, next to the blue water bottle refill station. Margaret Pace Park is a beautiful waterfront park with a horrible marine debris problem. There are picnic tables and restrooms onsite.
Ocean trash is a serious pollution problem that affects the health of people, wildlife and local economies. Join the world’s largest volunteer effort for our ocean and waterways. As part of International Coastal Cleanup day, we will be cleaning up Albert Pallot Park. Please be sure to wear comfortable shoes that can get wet/dirty. Bring a reusable water bottle, wear sunscreen, and bring your own gloves.
*International Coastal Cleanup will provide garbage bags, data collection cards, community service hours certificate, and a giveaway bag
- Everyone that participates should register online individually. We must have your name on the RSVP list as an individual (or your parent) in order for you to get the giveaway bag.
- Volunteers must check in and sign waivers before any materials (bags, cards, or gift bags can be distributed)
- **If you are under 18 and coming without a parent or guardian, you must have a parent/guardian sign the waiver below in advance.
In 2015, more than 18 million pounds of trash was collected by nearly 800,000 volunteers during the International Coastal Cleanup. Here in Miami Dade, 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 also cataloguing and tallying what you find using the Ocean Conservancy’s data collection cards or Clean Swell App. 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 coasts and waterways around the world.
We need your help to keep this momentum going.
