Be an Ocean Eco Hero. Get outside and help planet earth! Browse beach and reef cleanups, restoration projects and other events to get involved and lend a helping hand to your beach, reef or forest.
Help clean up the coastline of Crandon Park and collect data that will be used to inform marine debris prevention and management!
Conservation and restoration scientists often rely on data collected by citizen scientists to achieve a broader picture of their research subject or area- it truly “takes a village” to monitor, and ultimately preserve our beaches!
Join in on this important and fun work as we partner with Miami EcoAdventures and the Miami-Dade County Parks department as we conduct a beach cleanup along Crandon Park Beach, sort through the trash, and then collect important marine debris data!
Meet at the Crandon Visitors and Nature Center. You do not need to pay for parking, just pick up a parking pass from the event organizers upon arrival.

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 🤙
