Join Miami EcoAdventures & local non-profit Debris Free Oceans for our monthly Citizen Science Project Activity, hosted at Crandon Park every 2nd Saturday.
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. This activity aims 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.
Responsibilities and Duties:
Qualifications: Volunteers under 13 must participate with a parent/guardian present. Please bring a refillable water bottle, closed-toed shoes, and protection from the sun (sunscreen, hats, sunglasses).
Commitment Expected: Please arrive at your scheduled start time and we recommend staying for the duration of the activity. Community service hours will be provided via email following the event.
Great for families. Bring the kids and friends to beach cleanups and restoration projects. See where plastics end up and why it’s important to reduce plastic use and commit to more sustainable agriculture and fishing with less adverse human impact.
Be sure to RSVP, sign a waiver (if applicable) and check with the mentioned organizer to confirm details in advance.
Some snorkel, dive or beach cleanups may require proper certification and being comfortable in or around the water and familiar with water safety. If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out. Mahalo 🤙
