The Mission Continues Miami 1st Service Platoon has been working at Seminole Wayside for over a year helping to bring the park back to the community. Lack of funding and resources made it extremely difficult to maintain this park and its beautiful nature preserve pine rockland habitat. Over the years the park became plagued with debris and trash, however with the help of the Miami 1st Service Platoon, community volunteers, love, and tons of sweat equity the park has been revived and is becoming a great destination for families in South Dade and the neighboring military base.
On Nov. 2nd, 2019 please join the Miami 1st Service Platoon, Miami-Dade Parks and United Way of Miami-Dade as we continue beautification efforts at this park. We will be removing some trash/debris in the park and the nature preserve, removing invasive plants species, and planting new native plants. We will also be decorating rain barrels for rain water collection to promote water conservation/recycling.
This is a family friendly event that will include an educational nature walk along the walking trail around the preserve for volunteers and their families along with additional family fun and activities.
What To Wear :
Clothing you would not mind getting dirty and close-toed shoes. We will provide all gloves, goggles, and additional safety gear.
What To Bring :
Your positive attitude! And a friend or family member because the more the merrier!
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
