MUVE is excited to provide opportunities for our community to give back to critical coastal habitats through nature-based stewardship. On Saturday, October 15, 2022, MUVE and Miami Waterkeeper will host small groups of volunteers to enhance native beach dune habitat and do a citizen science-based coastal cleanup. We recommend close-toed shoes, sun and bug protection, and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty! 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. 

Directions to check-in

  • Check-in will be located at the picnic tables at Virginia Key North Point Beach Park. For GPS directions enter “Virginia Key North Point Trails.”

Community Service Hours

Safety

Citizen Science Cleanup

  • Download the free CleanSwell app for your smart phone prior to your arrival! Then you can submit data directly to the Ocean Conservancy’s global ocean trash database, which provides researchers and policymakers a snapshot of pollution problems and the data to help develop solutions. You can track your positive impact through the CleanSwell app on any smartphone.
