NOTE: We are not currently accepting individual registrations, but rather PRE-ORGANIZED groups of 5-8 volunteers
Join us weekdays this winter/spring at Biscayne National Park to help preserve our beautiful Park. With a preservation area of 95% water, we take ocean pollution as a serious issue, not just for our marine life but for our community of South Florida as well. Weather permitting, we will travel by park boats across Biscayne Bay to a beach on the oceanside of an island to remove marine debris from a sea turtle nesting beach. Keeping your health and safety in mind, all cleanups will be conducted in small groups and adhere with park health and safety mandates.

About Biscayne National Park
9700 SW 328th Street, Homestead, FL 33033, US
Biscayne National Park provides for a unique volunteer experience. We aim to give individuals the opportunity to make a difference in a place of great natural beauty. In an attempt to balance use and preservation, Biscayne is committed to the long term preservation of its 172,971 acres, most of which is under water. Aquatic and marine-based, service oriented projects help to further the protection and preservation of this South Florida treasure.
Within sight of downtown Miami, yet worlds away, Biscayne protects a rare combination of aquamarine waters, emerald islands, and fish-bejeweled coral reefs. Here too is evidence of 10,000 years of human history, from pirates and shipwrecks to pineapple farmers and presidents.
