Hurricane Irma

As we continue our recovery and cleanup efforts, please visit the Emergency website for the latest information on openings and closings in Miami-Dade County.

Get Involved

Miami-Dade County offers many opportunities to help maintain and improve our environment. With volunteer programs, as well opportunities to donate financially, Miami-Dade would not be what it is without the assistance of so many residents.


Miami-Dade single-family or duplex homeowners are eligible to receive 2 free trees per year, even if they have adopted trees in past years. More than 163,900 FREE trees given to our community since this program started in 2001.

Program volunteers can help during the Adopt-a-Tree events to hand out free trees. Events are scheduled on weekends during the summer. This is an ideal program for large and small organizations that are looking to volunteer as a group. Individual volunteers are also welcomed. Participants are eligible to receive community service hours.


Join us during this fun-filled, six-week-long extravaganza in March and April that celebrates one of our most precious natural resources -- Biscayne Bay -- and its surroundings.

During the annual Biscayne Bay Cleanup Day in April, thousands of community participants come out to the shores and islands of Biscayne Bay. These dedicated volunteers collectively removed tons of trash from 20 different sites along the shorelines of Miami-Dade County. This is a perfect event for groups to come out from all ages. Students participating are eligible to receive community service hours.


Advisory boards and task forces exist to provide residents and the community with information about ongoing projects and plans, as well as to consider decisions made by certain stakeholders.

Adopting a buoy

The Miami-Dade County Mooring Buoy Program depends on donations and support of local schools, individuals, groups and corporations, for continued maintenance of buoys. In turn, this increases visibility of natural and artificial reefs to be protected.

Endangered Lands Program

You can get involved by joining one of the workdays organized by the Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) Program and help to protect and restore natural areas in Miami-Dade County.
