Why is mangrove clean up vital to our environment? - Mangroves protect shorelines from erosion - Mangroves serve as valuable nursery areas for fish and invertebrates - Mangroves Support Threatened and Endangered Species - Mangroves are utilized in many parts of the world as a renewable resource

Water containers, hats, sunglasses, gloves if you have, sunblock and bug spray
Parking on site
Inclement Weather Plan :
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.
