International Coastal Cleanup: Miami Dade
Get ready to join millions of volunteers around the globe for the Ocean Conservancy’s 36th annual International Coastal Cleanup – the world’s LARGEST one-day volunteer effort for our oceans and waterways.
VolunteerCleanup.org organizes Miami-Dade County’s local participation in this global event with 45+ simultaneous shoreline cleanups all around the county, with each site being led by fantastic partner organizations in our network of cleanup hosts. The Miami-Dade ICC is a collaborative effort made possible by the generous support of our tidal sponsor Covanta, with additional support from Banesco USA, Blackstone Charitable Foundation, Miami-Dade County RER-DERM, Pubbelly Sushi, WPLG Local 10, and with special thanks to the Benjamin & Gloria Joannou, Jr. Family Conservation Fund.
Participating in the ICC is a great way to learn more about our plastic ocean crisis, while also demonstrating our collective commitment to reducing marine debris. But ICC isn’t just about picking up trash. During the cleanup, you will collect critical citizen science data using the Ocean Conservancy’s Clean Swell app, which will be used to drive systematic and policy changes locally, federally and globally.
We will be awarding prizes for the strangest find, best group photo, and various scavenger-hunt style contests. Community service hours will be provided. Find an ICC cleanup in Miami-Dade near you, join the movement and help spread the word!
