Come flow with us at Virginia Key Beach Park, followed by a cleanup of the surrounding area! First, we flow! The 60-minute yoga class, led by local instructor and DFO team member, Bonnie Waxman, will take place in the tranquil shade of Historic Virginia Key Beach Park. Then, we will collectively clean up the beach and park area for the remainder of the time. You can expect to learn a lot about how to live closer to a zero-waste lifestyle, and have fun while doing it!
What to Bring: BYOM (Bring your own mat!). Please wear closed-toed shoes and bring a reusable water bottle. Feel free to bring personal fabric gloves with palm protection, snacks, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, insect repellent, and a hat.

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 🤙
