Miami Beach 5th Street with Team USCG | International Coastal Cleanup 2022
Help Team Coast Guard Keep our Beaches Clean at our 5th Street on Miami Beach / Ocean Drive SoBe Cleanup Site!!!
Family, friends, co-workers, and associates are invited and encouraged to join eco-conscious Coasties in our on-going efforts to protect and preserve our oceans and waterways during the 37th annual International Coastal Cleanup Day.
Spearheaded globally by the Ocean Conservancy, VolunteerCleanup.org organizes Miami Dade County’s local participation in this global event with 45+ simultaneous shoreline cleanups around the county and is made possible by the generous support of our presenting sponsor Covanta and Rickenbacker Marina, with additional support from Blackstone Charitable Foundation, Verizon, Miami-Dade County RER-DERM, Pubbelly Sushi, and Greenberg Traurig.
Join us for the world's largest, one-day volunteer effort, and show your commitment to reducing marine debris, along with volunteers from across the globe!
