International Coastal Cleanup | Legion Park

Thank you for your interest in the International Coastal Cleanup at Legion Park Bayside. 

Legion Park is located in Miami's Upper East Side. Its eastern border is Biscayne Bay (where we will be cleaning) and the western side is Biscayne Boulevard.

  • We begin at 9:00, please arrive promptly for check-in
  • Enter Legion Park via NE 64th Street & Biscayne Boulevard
  • Parking is free. (Please do not leave any valuables in your car)
  • Meet in the front of the community building

Please be sure to bring the following:

  • Every volunteer must bring a signed waiver (will be provided later)
  • Close-toed or water shoes are mandatory, no flip-flops
  • Comfortable clothing
  • sunscreen and a hat
  • your own reusable kitchen or gardening gloves
  • water in your own re-usable water bottles (please don’t  create more waste and bring plastic water bottles to clean up plastic water bottles!)
  • rain gear (except in the case of extreme weather, the Cleanup is a rain or shine event) (as of Thursday, the forecast predicts a rainless window between 9 and noon ~ sweet!)
  • snacks
  • pen or pencil for filling out the data sheets
  • old kitchen tongs & buckets make collecting more fun for the younger kids
  • a camera!

Coastal Cleanup will provide the trash bags and data sheets.

Please be aware the the shoreline at Legion Park is very rocky and not suitable for children under the age of 4. ALL CHILDREN must be supervised by an adult. Children on their own will not be permitted to participate.

If you are registering a group, we need to know how many in your group and, if any children, their ages.  

    ***** All volunteers must fill out the Volunteer Release form ***** Download, print, sign and bring with you!

Thank you for helping to keep our coasts and oceans healthy! Looking forward to working together!

(For some reason there are 2 Legion Parks on Google maps. This can can be really, really confusing. The Coastal Cleanup is taking place at Legion Park in the Upper East Side, just east of Biscayne Boulevard, not the one indicated west of I-95 on Google)
