volunteers planting sea oat

MUVE is excited to provide opportunities for our community to give back to critical coastal habitats through philanthropic-based restoration workdays. On Saturday, May 21, MUVE and the Miami-Dade Parks Natural Areas Management (NAM) Division are collaborating to enhance Haulover Park’s coastal dunes. At this public event, volunteers will remove invasive vegetation, plant native sea oats, and clean the beach, so please wear sun protection and closed-toed shoes. All materials, water, and snacks will be provided. We encourage you to bring your own reusable gloves, reusable water bottle, and download the free CleanSwell app on your smartphone to collect marine debris data during the beach cleanup!

9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Volunteers will register on a first come, first serve basis. SPACES ARE LIMITED.

Registration closes Thursday, May 19.
