On Saturday, April 16, hundreds of volunteers will assemble at Ludlam Trail for its largest cleanup project to-date. HandsOn Miami’s Youth Advisory Council, a youth board of 13 to 17 year old students, selected Ludlam Trail as the host site to join hundreds of large scale service projects around the world for Global Youth Service Day.
Along with HandsOn Miami, the Miami Marlins Marlins Ayudan, Green Mobility Network, Friends of the Ludlam Trail, Florida East Coast Industries and the Travis Manion Foundation will partner to beautify the northern section of Ludlam Trail.
Volunteers of all ages are welcomed to meet at the trail, just north of A.D. Barnes Park to
- “erase” over 600′ of graffiti
- remove more than 2 tons of illegally dumped trash and debris
- complete “pop up” projects along the trail led by members of HandsOn Miami’s Youth Advisory Council
All volunteers will earn community service hours for participating and 4 tickets to attend the April 19th Miami Marlins vs. Washington Nationals game on behalf of Marlins Ayudan. Volunteers will also get to go on the field at Marlins Park for a special volunteer recognition ceremony that will take place before the first pitch.
