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.

Requirements:

  • Orientation or Training
  • Minimum Age 14
  • All volunteers must provide a signed waiver, which can be done beforehand or during the morning orientation meeting. Participants under the age of 18 must provide a waiver signed by parent/guardian in order to participate.
  • Group size must be between 5 and 8 people. We may cancel or reschedule an event due to low participant turnout or unsafe weather conditions.
  • Work is strenuous
Health and Safety:
  • Individuals must be in good health, if you have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher, you should not attend cleanup.
  • Participants are asked to wear face coverings at all times and follow 6-ft social distancing guidelines, whenever possible. Hand sanitizer will be provided and should be used often.
  • Individuals must bring plenty of food and water for the day, comfortable clothing, preferably long-sleeved, including a hat, sunglasses, and closed toed shoes that you do not mind getting wet.
  • We will provide: a large water jug for re-filling your beverage container, sunscreen, bug spray, hand sanitizer, life jackets, dive booties (for those that need them), and all work-related gear (such as protective gloves, trash bags etc.).

9700 SW 328th Street, Homestead, FL 33033, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
