About The Event

Join Coastlove and the Greater Miami Service Corps as we continue to restore the dune system in Sunny Isles Beach!

Dunes are important for coastal systems and communities alike. They provide natural protection against beach erosion and storm surges, all while providing a habitat for many species, including critical nesting habitats for sea turtles. Phase 2 of this restoration will be planting native vegetation such as sea oats. We will be using hand tools including shovels.

To ensure a smooth and successful experience, please note all volunteers must register in advance to participate in this event. Volunteers will be working in the sand, with hand tools such as shovels and saws; therefore, this event is NOT recommended for young children.

Don't forget to bring your reusable bottle to refill. We will not be handing out bottles of water or cups, but we will have water available!

Location & Parking Instructions:

Free parking for participants is available at Gateway Park

What to Bring/Wear/Know:

  • Closed-toe shoes are required! We will be working on the sand, in the South Florida environment.
  • Wear clothes and pack bags that can get wet/dirty.
  • Bring reef-safe sunscreen
  • Bring bug spray and/or wear long sleeves and pants.
  • A reusable bottle for refilling at the water stations.
  • Hat and towel. Suggested, not required.

Special thanks to the City of Sunny Isles and our partner organization, Adopt A Dune, for helping make this project possible!
