The Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) is our volunteer-run, water testing, education and advocacy program. Through this program, we educate our community and provide valuable water quality information. Our dedicated volunteers collect samples from over 20 sites in beach, canal and bay locations every Thursday throughout the year and process them at our BWTF lab in Miami Beach.
We are looking to grow our pool of water collector volunteers with a special focus on the Key Biscayne area. If you are interested, please email BWTF@miami.surfrider.org.
Our SEAS Program is a 3-part, Surfrider Miami funded program that’s a path to advocacy and opportunity for our Miami-Dade community. We teach swimming as the "gateway skill", as we know the ability to swim and feel comfortable in the water opens up amazing opportunities for study, employment, sport, leisure and advocacy.
We are in search of a passionate, dedicated volunteer who can help grow the SEAS program throughout Miami-Dade. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
